Candy Aisle Crafts by Jodi Levine
From the publisher:
From party decorations to children’s toys, from wearable art to cute gifts, you need look no further than your supermarket shelves for the materials to make these unique (and kid-friendly) food crafts. For special celebrations, rainy-day activities, and much more, treat yourself to the sweetest projects.
Colorful candy canes are fashioned into heart-shaped necklaces, melted peppermints are molded into a festive bowl, cookies and ice cream cones are transformed into a fanciful castle, marshmallows are snipped into a polar bear, and gumdrops become everything from adorable frogs to bumblebees and ducks. Candy Aisle Crafts is packed with simple ideas for charming crafts that both kids and parents will love.
This book is great! As the publisher said, these are all fun cute food crafts that you can make from things that are easily accessible in your supermarket. Each craft has a beautiful picture to go along with it. This helps me a lot because then I can visualize the craft and get excited about it, even before I make it.
The ingredient and directions are laid out clearly and so many of these are kid friendly that I find myself wanting to go the store right now and pick up supplies to do these with kids at school.
There are four main sources for these food crafts: hard candy (these are so cool that I think these are my favorite in this book), gummy candy, marshmallows, and cookies & cereal. If you don't like one area, you are sure to like another.
I received this book free from Bloggingforbooks.com in exchange for my honest review.
