Solar Oven S’mores

The kids might be back in school but there is still time to squeeze in some last minute science experiments. The girls and I made our own solar ovens! The best part about this end of summer experiment is that kids can set it up before school and see the results when they get home!

Bring the Color in with Crayon Sun Catchers!
