How To Draw Your Own S'more Friends DIY!


Step One: For the top graham cracker: Draw a square-- at a slant. Then draw three short, vertical lines then complete the bottom by connecting them with two longer lines.

Step Two: Leaving a space (for the marshmallow & chocolate filling) draw your bottom graham cracker - two long rectangles that line up with the top graham cracker.

Step Three: Color in the top and bottom graham crackers with a medium brown marker, colored pencil or crayon.

Step Four: Color in a layer of chocolate under the top graham cracker - be sure to add some rounded 'melted and dripping' chocolate!

Step Five: For the marshmallow - color in a square area in between the melted chocolate and the bottom graham cracker.

Step Six: You can make your marshmallow really light for a less-toasty look, or use a slightly darker creamy color to give it a golden, toasted look!

Step Seven: Using a fine point black marker or pen, draw your eyes, mouth and cheeks! I made the eyes and mouth look like the letter, 'u!'

For the cheeks I drew hearts!

You can draw the eyes and cheeks any way you want!

Step Eight: Draw lines for legs and arms with mini 'marshmallows' for hands and feet. (Optional: Draw shoes on your s'more characters.)


...using the black fine point marker, outline the chocolate, marshmallow and graham crackers and don't forget to add dots on the top using the fine point black marker or pen! See above for which lines are wavy and which are straight!

...And you're done! Fabulous job!
