Let Them Eat Sushi

Today, 27 teens dropped in for our April Fool's Day candy sushi program! Everyone made (and ate) three kinds of fake sushi, and we had a great time. We will definitely do it again in the future. There are a lot of ways to make candy sushi, so it could be a totally different program!

Today, our first candy project was a nigirizushi, which we created juju fish attached with Fruit Roll-Up strips to halves of mini powdered donuts. Next, we did a futomaki made from sliced Twinkie wrapped in Fruit Roll-Up, with gummy worm pieces in the center. Finally, we did another nigirizushi by using icing to attach large pieces of dried mango to quarters of Rice Krispy Treat. People who didn't like mango used gummy worms and juju fish for this one.

Everyone arranged the resulting 10 pieces of sushi on their square plates for a very nice presentation. Some people ate theirs at the program, while others took it home to try to trick family members! Here are some pictures of the event:
