Why wait for a magical summer night to spontaneously happen when with a little strategy, you can create one on demand? Here’s our recipe for the ultimate summer get-together with fun games for all ages, yummy treats (we’ll have s’more, please!) and a killer playlist. Just add sunshine!
The tried-and-true trifecta of summer sweets, no one can resist the combination of graham crackers, melted chocolate and gooey marshmallows cooked over a fire. Stash the ingredients on a pretty (and durable) platter for an edible centerpiece.
LISTEN: OUR CELEBRATE SUMMER PLAYLIST
Our June playlist is the mood we want to carry all the way through summer. Sit back, relax and pass the popsicles.
PLAY: MARSHMALLOW TOWER
We saw a version of this on “Minute to Win It”. You have one minute to build a tower of marshmallows on the end of a popsicle stick. The trick? The other end of the popsicle stick must remain between your teeth! At the end of sixty seconds whoever has the tower with the most marshmallows wins!
BONUS ROUND: CHUBBY BUNNY
Players put an increasing number of marshmallows in their mouths and attempt to clearly say “Chubby Bunny”. The winner is the person who is able to say it the best with the most marshmallows!

Don't forget the sparklers!
