  1. I saw this on Pinterest a while ago, and we made our own on Friday. Our girls loved it! We had to improvise a little on the eye, and were missing the candy fish (and let me tell you, they were pretty disappointed, because it was their favorite part of the picture!), but other than that it was a total success! Thanks for sharing and inspiring! I've loved looking exploring your blog!

  2. I wonder if my little nephews would love to eat that or if they will get distracted and play with it instead of eating. Lol! Either way, I'm sure it's something kids will enjoy. So simple to prepare too. Great job!

    Thanks for linking up, I love this snack and shark week on discovery channel, I missed it though this year. Going to feature your shark on Bacon Time on Friday morning ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. That is so stinking cute! I had to come up with 9 fun kid snacks for the summer camp at the Montessori school where I work. I am going to pin your idea so I can use it next year. Thanks so much for sharing it! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Blessings,

  5. How cute! I am always amazed at what people are able to come up with. I have no such talent so I love to see other people's ideas. I am a new follower from the Sunday Social blog hop and following thru GFC and Facebook. I would love a follow on both of those also when you get a chance. Thanks so much and have a great night!

  6. What a great blog! I have two boys myself and I am determined to make them good husbands–they know how to clean like a "master" (though they don't always!), do their own laundry, and I've taught them how to cook. At 11 and 7, they can make pasta, macaroni & cheese, quesadillas, scrambled eggs, and some other basics.New follower from a blog hop,

    I just found your blog … and all I can say is SOOOOO FUN and soooo amazing! I'm absolutely following you. While I don't have kids of my own (yet!), I'm a 1st grade teacher and will be looking here for extra-fun classroom treats. Keep the creative ideas coming, please!!
