In this fun activity, your child will create their very own solar oven to bake cookies or s'mores! We have given instructions which you can use to guide your child through the design thinking process. Since this is a design challenge, your child can be entirely creative with how they choose to make their oven using typical household items. However, we have also given a step-by-step procedure for making a solar oven in case your child is struggling to come up with ideas. Feel free to rely entirely on your child's creativity, take some inspiration from our procedure, or follow our procedure exactly. Be sure to engage your child by asking them questions that have them think critically about the design process.
