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.
This is such a cute cook craft book. This is also my first cook book, I thought it might be a risk to review something like this. I’m not a foodie or some type of wiz at arts and crafts either. But the title is Candy Aisle Craft so I figured hey someone like me who kind of sucks at this sort of stuff, maybe it could be easy.
There are cute pictures and examples to go along with them. The instructions are short and simple. The book is sorted into four categories. Hard candy, gummy candy, marshmallows and cookies and cereals.
The one down fall is that the book is half kid friendly and half not. A big part of this book is dealing with hard candies and heating them up. I don’t really think that is a kid friendly craft. And in the categories, like gummy candy and marshmallows are the same thing, animals. That’s all that’s being shown, I’m pretty sure there could have been a lot more of crafts, and not just one thing.
Other then that this book is really cute, and kind of fun and simple.
So if you’re interested in this book or anything else Jodi Levine has done you can go to her website and read a preview of this or anything other up coming work.
Also I tried out some gum drop animals and this is how they came out.

I was given this book for my honest review from the blogging for books program. (bloggingforbooks.org)
