best of teach mama countdown: #1 — candy sushi
I know, I know.
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 . . .
- teach mama’s top 10 all-time best countdown, #1: how to make candy sushi
. . . 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:
manage kids’ screen time with Game Time Cards
simple, beautiful sorting– fine motor and creative thinking fun
a silly way to help teach kids about emotions
and the whole read-aloud learning series
And that’s it for counting down over here–at least for a long while! Thanks for hanging in through the top 10 with us! We’ve got a lot of cool, sneaky learning activities around the corner.
Many thanks for reading, and I look forward to an exciting, adventurous, happy and healthy 2012 and beyond!
