3. Choose which santa to go with what date and write the date on the belly of the santa. We have made a simple hat to each santa a tub of a piece of paper and tie a string around it. Make sure the hat does not become too narrow. You should be able to take it off, so that you can fill with little treats.

Candy Sushi

Candy_sushi_PB_2013_1

In Sweden we have a tradition of letting the kids eat candy on Saturdays. Today we like to show what we amused ourselves with last Saturday. Check this out!

You need candy! You can pick almost anything but you need candy in the shape of straps and strings, as well as large marshmallows.

We’re making candy sushi! Instead of rice, we use marshmallows. Instead of salmon, we use candy fishes. Beautiful, isn’t it!

Some of the candy pieces were too long. The easiest way to get them shorter is to cut them with scissors. Make sure the scissors are clean, the sushi is to be eaten when it’s ready. We also used scissors to make holes in the marshmallows.

Our table is covered in sugar, but it doesn’t matter when you get sushis this nice.

Our candy sushis kept us busy for a long and enjoyable time. Need I say that our sushi was a success? Perhaps it might be a good idea for kids partys.
