Candy, Smores, Gumdrops, Anyone?

My son and I found
Candy Aisle Crafts
at our library.
Easy, easy, simple stuff we could actually pull off.
Well, maybe not the cone castle,
but the rest of it,
I'm pretty sure we could do.
And I'm a Cub Scout Leader.
Yep, I promise to
"Do My Best!"
Oh... the motto is "Do YOUR Best!"
Close enough. 
I'm still new. 
Really I'm not,
I just don't know what I am doing!
Back to the book...
I think this will be awesome for Cub Scouts
and for any mom or grandma
 who wants to be amazing by
candy circus animals
a gum drop zoo.
We are testing out
the Monster S'mores.
You don't need much.
I tried mini m and m's and they work!
So my little Cubs can each have a color
 and we'll know whose is whose.
[That's a big deal; we're also going to practice
 hand washing today :).]
Aren't they scary??  ?

He said,
"This is good."
there you have it.
Update:  Home from Scouts.  Wow.  This rocked.  It's the best group kids' food craft. 
Turn on the broiler.  I had ingredient kits in baggies for each child, then they put them together, put on a cookie sheet (with parchment paper or a Silpat), and broil for 45 seconds.  Brilliant.  
45 seconds and it's done.  Instant treats!


  1. Yeah for the "doable" projects!
