With the coronavirus pandemic keeping everyone indoors, we've all been having cabin fever. We all want to get out and enjoy life outdoors. But, it's not safe yet for our health.

Many of our kids are at home and bored.

And, while we're all trying to stay sane, it's hard on everyone. With the rain and weather also a factor, we're basically trying to just get by day by day.

Keeping kids occupied can be hard.

Finding ways to keep them happy at home can be complicated. It's not every day that we have endless time and resources. With lockdown keeping some stores closed, we're not always able to get out and shop.

But, some parents are finding ways to get it done.

Mom Lauren Grude shared a brilliant hack on her Facebook on how to make S'mores at home for her kids and we cannot get enough.

With the rain taking a toll on some homes, she found this on Facebook and tried it herself. She wrote:

"I saw this idea on Facebook a couple days ago and because of the rain lately and the kids wanting s’mores I decided to give it a try."

The S'mores are cooked inside the mini pie crusts in the oven.

All you need is a muffin tin, mini graham cracker pie crusts, chocolate, and marshmallows. You assemble the S'mores like you were making a mini S'mores pie. They look absolutely adorable, to be honest.

And, they take no time to cook.

The mom's instructions are fail-proof.

"Oh. Em. Gee. These are AMAZING. Assemble and bake at 350° for 8-10 mins and then just try to have only one."

Seriously, I want 10!

Other parents also shared tips on making S'mores at home.

One mom said they used a cast iron skillet to make "S'mores Dip," and that just sounds like a true dream. I want to eat the entire pan.

If you have an air fryer, this mom said these take only 4 minutes.

It's like having a campfire in your own home, as you get to watch your S'mores cook like they would outdoors. What a smart and brilliant hack!
