Homemade Solar Oven--take two

 Six years ago, we made our first solar oven (from scratch). 
The little kids don't remember this, so, thanks to Green Kid Crafts today was their turn.
 This project was part of the August box:  Green Energy.
As always, everything was included in the box (except the makings for the s'mores.
 Kimberly putting the final touches on the solar oven.
 First we preheated the oven out in the bright sunshine.
After about 15 minutes we put the graham crackers and marshmallows into the cooker.
You wouldn't want to add the chocolate at this point or it would turn to liquid.
The inside of the over gets HOT!
 After the marshmallows were in the oven about 20 minutes, we added the chocolate.
 We only left the chocolate inside the oven for about 5 minutes.
 After the five minutes, the chocolate was very melted...and very hot.
 Now that's a good s'more!
Thanks Green Kid Crafts for another great project.
