Kindergarten snacks aquarium theme. They were learning about fish and the ocean that week. We even took a field trip to a local aquarium market. This was fun to make.
First I made vanilla pudding. (The original idea was to use jello but jello and I do not get along.) I used blue and green food coloring to give it the aqua color. I spread the aqua colored pudding in my cookie sheet. A 9x13 cake pan would work for this or any serving dish with an edge. The "gravel or sand" is crushed vanilla cookies.
Then I ever so careful placed Swedish fish, shark fruit snacks, and gummy worms throughout the aquarium scene. Now I thought I was finished. My great friend, who happens to be a 3rd grade teacher, saw my snack and said, "It's really great. How is the teacher supposed to serve it though? Scrape it out of there with a spoon?" Hmmm....right. So I went back to work and filled the bottom of clear plastic cups with the "sand" (vanilla cookies) and spooned aqua pudding on top.
Then I filled the mini aquariums with the candy Swedish fish and shark fruit snacks. You really could just do that and the effect would be really cute. I just wanted a neat little aquarium scene to go with the cups. The teacher used the larger aquarium snack scene for seconds. It was a big hit.
