HASH(0xa0990dc8) out of 5 stars a MUST have for Class Moms and Girl Scout Leaders Aug. 27 2014
By Katharine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is BEAUTIFUL and super smart. Unique craft ideas that normal people can actually make. Materials seem easy to find and directions and photography are so clear. I am doing the "fish pops" with my Girl Scout Troop this week when we work on our pollution in the oceans unit… I am sure they will want it to be a regular part of this season's meetings. Looking forward to using the ideas for holiday crafts in my children's classrooms. I can't wait for the next book.

HASH(0xa084b8e8) out of 5 stars Jodi Levine's Candy Aisle Crafts is a fun "cookbook" of crafting with food ideas Oct. 12 2014
By Learning Table - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jodi Levine's Candy Aisle Crafts is a fun "cookbook" of crafting with food ideas. My little chef snatched this book up as soon as it arrived, and he is inspired by the unique and doable recipes. Formerly with Martha Stewart Kids (which I miss so much!), Jodi's familiar style of kid crafting shines in this irresistible book.

Each project features pre-made candies and other ingredients like ice cream cones, so most of them require little advance prep. There are also some cake and cupcake decorating ideas, but the cake recipes are not included. Instructions will tell you to have something like "pink frosted cupcakes" in the supplies list. I like having the items listed in bold at the beginning of each set of instructions, so I can make my shopping list easily and determine how much advance prep is required.

The recipes in Candy Aisle Crafts are kid-friendly, and kids are featured in many of the photographs. Several of the projects would be cute for birthday parties for kids from baby on up, and many of the projects are adaptable for holiday fare. Some of the ideas are super-simple, such as shaped marshmallows for hot chocolate, and some of the ideas are elaborate, such as the cookie castle cake. But all of them are really accessible.

Some of the activities include making flowers from gumdrops and Necco Wafers, peppermint ornaments, clown cupcake toppers, gummy animal menorah, marshmallow birds, and triangle tree pops.

My young son is able to follow the instructions and create his own version of all the projects we've tried, without frustration. It's no fun to pick up a cookbook or craft book and quickly discover that you'd have to be a professional to attempt them. Candy Aisle Crafts is practical, yet features beautiful and unique food crafts.

HASH(0xa160389c) out of 5 stars difficult to find the supplies required Sept. 27 2014
By J. Lietz - Published on Amazon.com
Candy Aisle Crafts by Jodi Levine features ideas and instructions on how to create fun edible treats using items from the candy aisle at the grocery store.

Some of these ideas are pretty involved and go about the process in a way that I thought was time consuming. Instead of trying to melt hard candies, you can simply soften taffy and get the same results as she shows in some of the ideas.

For other options, I have never even seen some of those types of candies. There is no guide on where to find those candies or how to order them online.

Some of the ideas I thought looked like fun, like the cookie planets. That is one I would try out with my kids.

My other issue with the book is the binding. I feel that all cooking related books should be spiral bound so the book actually stays open while you're in the kitchen trying to follow the instructions.

HASH(0xa07165c4) out of 5 stars Great fun! Sept. 16 2014
By Teacher Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
From the publisher:
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 book is great! As the publisher said, these are all fun cute food crafts that you can make from things that are easily accessible in your supermarket. Each craft has a beautiful picture to go along with it. This helps me a lot because then I can visualize the craft and get excited about it, even before I make it.

The ingredient and directions are laid out clearly and so many of these are kid friendly that I find myself wanting to go the store right now and pick up supplies to do these with kids at school.

There are four main sources for these food crafts: hard candy (these are so cool that I think these are my favorite in this book), gummy candy, marshmallows, and cookies & cereal. If you don't like one area, you are sure to like another.

I received this book free from Bloggingforbooks.com in exchange for my honest review.

HASH(0xa06fcd80) out of 5 stars I absolutely love this book Sept. 17 2014
By AB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this book. I love it as much as my 4 year old daughter does.
We are particularly fond of the marshmallow section.
Going to the supermarket used to be a chore, now it's a treat.
Every friend I have with kids is getting a copy.
