- Make Martha's Pink Marshmallows. You'll be in the pink with this Marshmallow
recipe from Martha Stewart, which is yummy for a pink pirate party, a pink
cowgirl party, or a princess party. And your little Pinkie Pie is sure to love it for
her My Little Pony Party.
- Create Candy Kabobs for the cowpokes: Your little wranglers won't mind if you
skip the campfire when you unwrap the yummy marshmallow pops from
Koko's, pictured right. You may find them in a novelty candy store.
- Skewer up some fun! Chocolate covered marshmallows on a stick are. Place
three marshmallows on a stick and dip into melted chocolate. You can also buy
them ready made or make Mamma Reeiner's chocolate covered marshmallows.
- Conjure up colorful kabobs. Wilton lollipop sticks add to the magic of colorful
candy Kabobs. Spear some gum drops, gummy candies, colorful
marshmallows, lifesavers. Try gummy bugs on a stick for a bug party. Make
them yourself or buy Fear Factor Gummy Bug Skewers.
- Lasso up for licorice lariats and lead ropes. Yee-high! Tie some licorice rope or a
licorice lace to a sturdy steed to look like a lead rope for your model horse.

bracelets and garlands from candies that you staple together into chains. Salt

gummy candies. This idea is not for kids under 3 as this is a choking hazard,

- Something cool for the pool party: pull out the ice cube tray and plop in some
Swedish fish, then fill with water you've dyed with a few drops of blue food
coloring, and freeze the tray. Serve your iced confection with lemonade. As
the ice cubes melt, the food coloring changes the lemonade to an ocean
green. Jelly Belly makes a yummy assortment, pictured left, or choose the
classic. Talk your party on a tour of the Jelly Belly Factory if you live in the San
Francisco Bay Area or just check out their free birthday ideas.
- Kiss the frog: Freeze Gummy Frogs in an ice cube tray for a princess party.
Frog candies are hard to find, but the five pound bag from Haribo should keep
the kids "hoppy."
- Bug out for a bug party: Use gummy worms to fill tall Popsicle molds. Freeze
with a stick and the same "bug juice" you plan on serving guests. Use the
Popsicles as stirrers.
- Concoct a Candy Critter. Straight from Candy Land, the book, right, you can
create a lifesaver centipede and 52 other candy creatures. It provides hours
of inspiration for play date activities.
- Think pink. Sweets are easy for a princess party, just think pink. And you can
add yummy pink candy to a pink cowgirl party with cotton candy, pink coated
chocolate candies (Breast Cancer Awareness M&Ms), raspberry sherbet or
sorbet, strawberry milkshakes or ice cream, strawberry angel food cake, and

out your long gloves and check out these decorated sugar cubes for a tea
party or a princess party. They are also fun for a pony party (because horses
love sugar cubes).
