See the flat marshmallows? I had no idea they even made those (apparently, they’re for s’mores!), but when I saw them, I thought they’d be perfect, and they were! The little Sweedish fish fit on top perfectly, and we wrapped a rolled-out tootsie roll around each one. We also used:
Red pull-apart licorice, Dots, sugar-coated, rainbow-striped candy “belts,” (??) and other sour candy strips, sour gummy worms (cut up), and for the “ginger” and the mini roses, we heated starburst candies for a couple seconds, and shaped them into whatever we wanted. My 7 year old accidentally made one rose, then we made a whole row of them because we thought they were so cute.
It was a sticky fun activity, and the kids enjoyed helping to create each type of “sushi.” 😀
We had SO much candy and marshmallows left, we decided to do a little to-go box of candy sushi for each kiddo in our homeschool group. I found a great 3x3inch printable box template online, and printed it out onto bright-colored cardstock I had in my stash. We folded and glued the boxes together, filled the with goodies, and tied them with a ribbon. They were so pretty.
