So... graham crackers do not stay fresh for 2 days

We are making s'mores boxes for our favors because the venue has a fire ring.  I found a picture of these little boxes and we are going to put little stickers on them that say "S'more love from the newlyweds".





Problem is, we would LIKE to make these ahead of time and are having trouble trying to keep the graham cracker crunchy!  We taped the entire box and it didn't work.  Next, we are going to try big zip lock baggies.

Any other suggestions?

    I would go with the ziplocks I have had some from bags after 2 weeks, it might be something that you need to make everything up and then the Thursday before the wedding put them together with your wedding party?!

    Ha thanks!  I'm a gomer like that :)  I am hoping we can make them the day before and they'll still be fresh if kept in the zippie bags.

    Little science project we have going on! lol

    I love this idea!  Please update us once you get this figured out.  We're having our reception in Clear Lake where we live on s'more in the summer [cooked over a big firepit my love built for my children].  Can I maybe steal your idea?

    Update:

    Ok so we looked into the individual crackers and reviews said that most of them were broken in the package, so I don't think we'll do that :(

    As for our pre-made boxes - we can't get the graham cracker to stay fresh for 36 hours yet.  We have taped the box, and put it in a baggie.

    Now, we have "cling wrapped" JUST the graham crackers inside the box, thinking maybe the marshmallows are whats making them soft. 

    So.. we'll see!

    Ok its been 3 days since we wrapped the graham crackers and it has worked like a charm :) Just wanted to give everyone an update in case you decided to do this!   May still put them in big baggies for extra "security".

    TY!
