Perfectly Roasted Marshmallow

Your Scout Elf is keeping things sweet by roasting marshmallows over an open gumdrop fire—a sweet alternative to a typical campfire!


  • 5 cardboard straws
  • Handful of gumdrops
  • Jumbo marshmallow
  • Glue


  1. First, your elf will create a base to roast their marshmallow on by gluing two straws in the shape of an “X.” They will repeat this step to create two sides.
  2. Then, your elf will create a roasting stick by placing a straw through one jumbo marshmallow and resting it atop the base.
  3. Your elf will gather a small handful of gumdrops and place them underneath the marshmallow to look like a small campfire and toast their treat to perfection.
