8. I will say yes to more s’mores. It doesn’t get much better than gooey s’mores, eaten in the backyard at the end of a summer day. If you have a fire bowl, be sure to put s’mores on the menu more than once. No fire bowl? Maybe this should be the year to get one.Tell us: What’s your favorite thing about summer?

If you have a fire pit, bust out the s’more materials for dessert or try “campfire banana splits.” To make the banana splits, cut a groove lengthwise down each unpeeled banana and have kids stuff toppings of their choosing, like chocolate chips, marshmallows or nut butter, into the groove. Wrap with foil and place around the edges of a campfire for about 5 to 10 minutes (long enough to melt chocolate). You can also make campfire banana splits in the oven by baking them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about five to 10 minutes.

1. Make S’moresFriday, August 10, is National S’mores Day — a good opportunity to cap off a beautiful summer evening with homemade s’mores around the fire. If you don’t have a fire pit (or prefer to avoid the smoke) whip up some s’mores-inspired treats in your kitchen instead.10 Smoke-Free Fire Pit Ideas | Find marshmallow toasting forks

Not the gravel, but, the firepit is about the right height.
