Thank You For....Candy Sushi

Oh so sushi. We just loved our candy sushi event last year and decided we better have a replay. Such a simple idea. Inexpensive. Imaginative. Creative. Yummy. Colorful. Anyone can dream up and produce a lovely, edible creation. We attempted to talk about going to a sushi resturant and what real sushi chefs actually use for ingredients. No one seemed too interested because ------they were HAVING SO MUCH FUN!

Recreate this wonderful tween/teen event with any cakes (Twinkies, Snowballs, Little Debbies, Pound Cake Snacks,etc.), gummy octopus (ocotopi?), gummy worms, Swedish Fish, Fruit Roll Ups, Fruit By the Foot, marshmallows, sprinkles.....the sky's the limit.We used mini donuts this time for "pillows" but Rice Krispy treats are another idea and can be cut into rectangles or round shapes or even made into large rolls.

Give thanks for candy sushi.
Give thanks for amazingly creative and fun tweens/teens.
Give thanks for libraries.
Give thanks for books, computers, Kindles, and iPads.
Give thanks for all of the wonderful people who devote themselves to making the library a lovely, fun,exciting place to spend time.
Give thanks for blogs where we can share ideas, photographs, and chuckles.

Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!
