Invite the children to roast a marshmallow. Have them select a marshmallow with the tweezers or tongs.
Name the letter on the marshmallow and then “toast” it in the fire.
Finally, place the marshmallow on the corresponding graham cracker or chocolate square on the sheet.
Repeat with a different marshmallow.
