I know, I know.candy sushi

It kind of makes me laugh, but our how to make candy sushi post has seen quite a bit o’ traffic over the last year.

As part of Maddy’s Cheerleading Birthday Par-tay, candy sushi was a huge hit with the kids and a huge hit with moms. But I suppose it’s also been a huge hit for people around the world who are searching for candy sushi how-to’s.

So it rolls in at numero uno in the best of teach mama countdown, which I think is a bit hysterical being that this is not a foodie blog, a cooking blog, or a candy blog.  We’re more of a learning in the every day blog, with a literacy spin and some crafty-crafts thrown in now and again.

But we are a sweet-tooth family, and this is a pretty fun activity that gets kids involved and using their hands and brains.  And to this day, candy sushi is one of our fave special-occasion snacks.

Here’s the skinny . . .

. . . Totally not a new concept but new for us.

Candy Sushi is my new favorite treat.  It’s one of my all-time faves–Rice Krispie Treats–along with another love of mine, Swedish Fish.  And Fruit Roll-Ups. And gummy worms, bears, or M & M’s.   All wrapped into one happy little sushi roll. . . .

Read the original post for the candy sushi how-to! (And happy, happy sushi-making!)

 

Though the teach mama top-10 all-time best countdown is now officially ovaaaah (phew!), I think it’s worthwhile to share a few of the other posts that came in very close to the very fancy top-10.   Just for kicks:
