Eats 'N Crafts

When I attended Kosherfest this year, it was with intention of finding new and exciting products  to pass on to my readers. To my delight, I encountered  the Paskesz candy company  first. Right away, I knew I was off to a good start!  Once again Paskesz has put on the market a new and original candy that’s sure to be a big hit. For one who  enjoys  creative  food crafting , these new  Eats ‘n Crafts are a winner for you! (Not to mention they taste great too!) Edible lanyard, lacing cookies, weaving, pom poms… the ideas are endless. The  following  are some actual samples that I have tried. (Some have instructions, while others are pictures only.) Remember- the sky’s the limit and let your child’s imagination soar!

 

 

Eats 'N Crafts is available at your local supermarket or it can be ordered from www.onlykoshercandy.com

Cookie Lacing

 

Supplies:

  • Cookie dough
  • Large cookie cutter
  • Straw
  • Eats ‘N Crafts
Directions:
  1. Roll out the cookie dough.
  2. Using  your  cookie cutter, cut out shapes.
  3. Use a straw to make holes for lacing. Move the straw around a little, in a circular motion to enlarge the hole. If the hole closes up during baking,  repoke the hole as soon as you remove the cookies from the oven.

 

  4. Tie a knot at one end of the Eats ‘N Crafts and begin “stitching” the cookie.

 

 

Cookie Weave:

 

 

Supplies:

  • Larger size sandwich cookie
  • Melted chocolate
  • Toothpicks
  • Eats ‘N Crafts

 

Directions:

  1. Open up the sandwich cookie and remove the cream filling.
  2. Place ½ tsp of melted chocolate in the center of one half.
  3. Arrange 12 tooth picks as in photo. Allow to dry completely.
  4. Place another ½ tsp of melted chocolate over the toothpicks.

   

5.Cover the cookie with the other half of the cookie. Allow to dry completely     

6. Knot together 8 strands of Eats ‘N Crafts.   

7. Begin weaving  the Eats 'N Crafts around the cookie, keeping all knots to the back.  When done, tuck the end of the Eats 'N Crafts to the back end.

 

Indian Bead Stitch

 

Here is a fun, easy and impressive looking design. As a young girl, I used to enjoy doing this with telephone wires.

Supplies:

  • 3 or 4 strands of Eats ‘N Crafts
Directions:
  1. Knot the strands of Eats ‘N Crafts together on one end.

 

2. Each one of the strands will  “take turns” wrapping the other strands.   

3. Take one strand of the knotted Eats 'N Crafts and wrap it around the other   strands (about 1”).

 

4. Next, take another one of   the strands and wrap it around the other strands. Continue until   pattern is complete.  Knot all strands together at the end.

 

 

Easy Finger Crocheting

 

 

My grandmother taught me to crochet with my fingers when I was 5 or 6 years old. I used basic yarn to make bracelet after bracelet. Learning how to make a crocheted chain is the first step in learning how to crochet. This is a fun and easy stitch to teach young children.

 

Directions:

1) Make a slip knot at one end of a strand of Eats ‘N Crafts.

 

2) Place your finger in the knot and pull the longer string to make sure the loop is snug.  

3) Take the longer string and wrap it over your finger, above the loop and around.

 

 

4) Carefully bring the bottom loop over the top loop until it is all the way over.

 

5) Use the longer string to ensure the remaining loop is snug around your finger. The new loop you formed will now be the bottom loop.

6) Repeat the process, pulling the bottom loop over the top loop.

 

 

Zipper Stitch

 

Supplies:

  • 2 strands of Eats ‘N Crafts for core strands (zipper tracks)
  • 1 strand of Eats ‘N Crafts for working strand
Directions:
  1. Tie all strands together at one end.

 

2. Turn the working strand over the first core strand and under second core strand toward the right. Pull taut.

 

 

3.Then turn work strand   over the first work strand and under next work strand toward  the left. Pull taut.  

4. Repeat until  you reach desired length.  

5. Tie a knot at the end.
