Backyard Campout Tonight

Sometimes it's about the food!

The National Wildlife Federation's Green Hour Program is about reversing the nature deficit disorders we find in today's kids. They are spending an average of six hours per day glued to TV and other electronic screens. Most Kids are -- after the shock of stepping away from the computer -- delighted to be playing outside and even having a backyard campout. Some kids may require more incentives though. We recommend bait!

Take 1 graham cracker, break in half. Break off 2 blocks of chocolate candy bar. Place candy on cracker, then place 1 marshmallow on top of candy. Put other half of cracker on top of marshmallow. Squeeze over long-handled fork or stick. Hold over heat until melted. Squeeze it together a little more (smore) and serve.

NWF's Great American Backyard Campout Happy camping!
