Where Have I Been?

If you check out this blog and then my craft blog, The Crafty Bees Knees, you will know the answer to the question, where have I been.
 Of course fish crackers and though it is not pictured, some Swedish Fish as well.  Always a hit with the kids.
 A craft making fish out of paper plates.
Yes, I know I have two fishy looking cakes posted.  THe one above is the one we had for the family birthday party and this one was for the kid party.
Octopus hot dog on green colored Ramen noodles.  One of the kids wouldn't eat it because it was that dreaded color.... GREEN.  I tried to convince her that it was only food coloring int he water I boiled but she was having no part of it.
Saw something similar to this on Pinterest and had to make it.  Here I used a cottage cheese container, the big tub. I hot glued the ribbons on the under side and then hot glued the lid (which I had cut to fit) over top of all the ribbons.  This forced the ribbons to the edges.  I also had cut a hole in the center of the lid and strung some ribbon through there as well.
Pin the Fin on the fish.  My six year old, well now seven, came up with this rather brilliant idea if I do say so myself.
 More jelly fish.

This I also saw this cucumber killer whale on Pinterest and just copied it.  I used a toothpick to prop up the dorsel fin because I never bothered to read the directions that were with the post.  I know its lame but I just hate reading directions.

Oh my gosh, that fish cake is ADORABLE! How clever. And I'm all about cute appetizers so the whale cucumber caught my eye as well. You know at some point I am going to have to copy these ideas.
