Arrow Edible Art Products - Kid's Craft Products

Paulette just returned from the CHA show and said a study was done that indicated "edible art" and "kids crafts" ranked very high as big items in the craft and hobby industry.

So she's asked me to check with y'all - she'd like to know whether message board members would be interested in edible art products, like for decorating cakes, cupcakes & cookies.

And also your thoughts on whether you'd buy kids craft products and any feedback you have on that!

Post your input here and we'll recap and get it back directly to Paulette!

My grandkids live to far away for me to do crafts with them, so no to the kids crafts. I don't decorate cakes and would have no use for edible art products.

I have lots of fun with my grands doing art projects which include edible art. I would be interested if the price was right. We have three craft stores in the area that sell these types of items and I can use coupons to get them at at discounted rate. So, the items would have to be at the right price point and/or something not available in other craft stores.

Nope from Maine, same as above. I think it would be hard to beat Wilton for cakes and such now that even Wal-Mart carries it.

Even when more grandkids come along, I think I'm either too old school or maybe cheap is the word people would use, but kid's crafts shouldn't be expensive, just fun. My kids created whole worlds with felt shapes we cut by hand and a felt board I made with cardboard and duct tape. Pasta shapes are a lot of fun too.

Not for me. Biggest issue- food allergies! Nearly impossible to have fun with baked goodies anymore in this food allergy culture. For kids, kid proof stamp pads and coloring books!

HSN had someone on their last craft day with sugar cookie decorating. Wonder if that's the type of product she's considering. They were pretty but it would take forever to make even enough for a kid's class. Just not my cup of tea.

I have to ditto all of the above. I am a really good cook, but I am so NOT a baker. I suck at it. The kid I have that is interested in crafting can use most of the regular tools and themes.
