Blend the delectable and delightful with the help of Candy Aisle Crafts. This image-heavy cookbook/crafting guide is perfect for kids and parents. Using store bought treats, your family can whip up incredible creations in only a few steps.

A long time contributor to Martha Stewart Living and mother of two, author Jodi Levine knows what it takes to keep kids entertained without driving parents crazy. Though children might need some help from mom and dad to put these edible crafts together, the goal of every project is fun, not frustration.

The tutorials in Candy Aisle Crafts are divided into four categories based on the main ingredient: hard candy, gummies, marshmallows, and cookies and cereal. From hard candy you can make cake toppers, peppermint ornaments, and edible jewelry. Gummies can be used to create bumble bees, ballerinas, and frogs, while marshmallows are ideal for crafting mini birds and polar bears. If your family is looking for a real challenge, cookies make great building blocks for an edible castle or solar system.

A word to the wise: not every project is easy. The more elaborate crafts are better suited for preteens than they are for elementary school students. Candy Aisle Crafts would make a wonderful resource for folks who lead scout troops or youth groups. Older kids will be able to grasp the more advanced concepts and work on one large construction project as a team. This book also makes a great gift for anyone who still likes to play with her food!
