This sashimi inspired kid’s snack is fun for parties and so easy to make!
I had a “kawaii” party for daughter’s first birthday. It was inspired by our love for all things Japanese (after we lived there for three years) and by the similarity my daughter had to kokeshi dolls. You can see the details on that party theme in my post about Juliana’s first birthday party.
My daughter is now twelve years old and loves all things “kawaii” just like me. She asked me if I would make the fake sushi/sashimi treat that I made for her first party once again. I made it for her 12th birthday party this week, and shared a pic on social media. I had no idea everyone would love it as much as we do, and I had several requests for the project tutorial. This is incredibly easy to make…you can probably figure it out by looking at the picture. Only one of the ingredients is harder to find.
Sashimi Inspired Kid’s Snack Supplies
- Rice Krispie Treats
- Swedish Fish
- Fruit Rollups
You can make your own Rice Krispie treats, but the prepackaged snack size bars are the PERFECT size. If you’re in a rush (like I was) grab a box and start unwrapping. It saved a ton of time to not have to cut the treats myself, and it also helped ensure that each piece was exactly the same size.
The green fruit rollups are always the hardest to find for some reason! Look for the Green Apple Fruit Rollups. If, like me, you can’t find them, then improvise. I ended up buying a multicolor pack and then slicing it up. If you use a really sharp knife you can cleanly cut thin strips of the fruit rollup.
Place a Swedish Fish on the rice crispy treat, and wrap it with the fake seaweed. That’s it! I used wax paper as a base to keep the treats from sticking to the tray.
Luckily these are quick to make because they disappear FAST. Kids just gobble them up!
