Thankfully, we are about to redo our back room, so it was emptied of furniture and my dear sweet fireman let me draw on the walls. It made for a great backdrop.
These little gummy crabs are so easy to make! Candy, toothpicks and some candy eyes. Just watch the littles with the toothpicks.
I added apples to give reassure parents that it’s not all sugar. Lol!
Typically these are made with large pretzels, but the under 5 crowd don’t always like the salt. So I substituted breadsticks - kid friendly win!
What’s easier than a plate full of sugar?
We added some “crabwiches” - these are super simple! Croissants with ham and cheese.
Some lighter fare - the pepper octopus was easy to create with the addition of two google eyes.
Oysters with a hidden pearl!
And of course, a crab cake.
