Edible Art

Yesterday we went to a birthday party. One of the fun events was the piñata. I wasn't sure how Miss K would do with the blindfold but she was fine. She knew what to do and she was whacking it. J was totally going after it with all his might. Both kids came home with Tootsie Rolls and other candy. Considering the fact that we still have Easter candy I decided it was time to do some edible art. A few years ago we celebrated Tootsie Roll day -- this really is an old candy. We did some art then.

We put the Tootsie Rolls in our pockets while we did some school and then we unwrapped them for art. Last time I had put them in the microwave. This time we just put them in our pockets and that was just as easy as they didn't get hot or melt.

It was hard to work them together. We started just playing with the pieces and then as they got a bit softer we had bigger pieces to work with. I decided this might also count as therapy.

We tried to see what we could make. They seemed the perfect shape and size.

Stonehenge -- a review of our history.

A submarine - she was very proud of what she had made. She also made a fish which I didn't get a picture of.
