Octo-dogs (Hotdogs that look like tiny octopuses. Cut all the hotdogs in half - but not all the way - only so that they open. Then you slice halfway up four times on each half so that you have 8 dangling sections and place in boiling water. Watch them curl up like arms!!!)

Submarines (Subs!! you can make this a buffet-where everyone makes their own subs)

Fish-shaped tuna sandwiches (Use a fish shaped cutter)

Pasta shells

Seaweed pasta (Green linguine)

crab sticks

Shrimp dip

Under-the-sea fruit salad (Add blue food coloring to give it the under-the-sea effect)

Jellyfish sandwiches (Peanut Butter and jelly - fish shaped cutter)

Jelly boats (halved oranges, squeeze them so the juice comes out, make jelly in them, set then make a sail and stick it in with a cocktail stick.

fake sushi

4 oz butter
2 lb minimarshmallows
3 lb Rice Crispies
20-25 gummy worms
1-2 boxes of Kellogg’s Fruit Winders
12 x 17 inch baking sheet or Swiss roll tin
Large saucepan
What to do:
Grease a 12- by 17-inch baking pan
Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat.
Add the marshmallows and stir until smooth.
Remove mixture from heat and stir in the rice crispies until evenly coated.
Turn the baking sheet so that the shorter ends are at the top and bottom. Then press the marshmallow mixture on the sheet, distributing it evenly.
Starting at one side and 1 inch up from the lower edge, place gummy worms atop the mixture end to end in a horizontal line.
Gently roll the lower edge of the marshmallow mixture over the gummy worms.
Then stop and cut the log away from the rest of the mixture. Use the same method for 4 more logs.
Slice each log in 1-inch-thick "sushi" rolls and wrap them individually with a strip of fruit leather.

Have you not got a ready supply of small treasure chests in the house ? Just me then...grin
(I had a small plain wooden box which I painted brown and painted on the fastenings and 'clasps' with gold paint when we had a pirate party)
