The ultimate materials for fun, whimsical crafting are right in your grocery store!
“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.”
Candy Aisle Crafts written by Jodi Levine, forward by Martha Stewart, is a whimsical dream of a craft book that makes the eyes dance and mouth water! The beautiful photography alone was enough to completely sell me on this book from the beginning, however, this book is also filled with fun, easy and most importantly CLEAR instructions on how to create these candy wonders in your own home! We have already tried one of these delicious projects ( the Peppermint bowls ) and it did not disappoint! I can tell this will be a favorite with my children for years and years to come and sure to be a dog eared treasure they just might enjoy with their own children! ( I know I loved looking at the cherished cookbooks my Mother lovingly saved to share with me! )
This book has three delicious sections: Hard Candy, Gummy Candy, Marshmallows & cookies and cereal that are sure to hold a delicious treat for just about anyone, kid or not 😉
If you are looking for a practical, well written, easy to follow culinary crafting book that will make you feel like a kid in a candy shop…literally! Check this book out!
