Go Hawks !! We live just outside of Seattle and my son is a huge Seahawks fan. Even I was on the edge of my seat last week when they won against their rivals the San Francisco 49ers. If I am into a game it’s a big deal. I asked my son if he wanted to do a Super Bowl activity for the blog with a Seahawks theme and the immediately said he wanted to do something that celebrates one of his favorite players Marshawn Lynch. Beast Mode is a nickname and the skittles in marshmallow squares are not only in Seahawks colors but are also a shout out to Marshawn Lynch who has had a long history of gobbling skittles or “power pellets ” as his mom called them when he was younger. You can read the whole story straight from his mom here.
