This is one of the great easy recipes for kids, but quite frankly this might make the top 5 list of most creative recipes on this entire site and there are some GOOD ones here!
Place wax paper in 12 by 17 baking sheet. Melt butter on medium heat on stove in medium sized pot. Then stir in marshmallows. Remove from heat and stir in rice cereal.
Let mix cool briefly until ready to bit harder. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray and with baking sheet end (not side) closest to you press in mix of rice cereal until evenly distributed. The sheet will probably only be covered half way and that's fine.
Now you will line the gummy worms onto the mix. Start by placing the gummy worms and licorice string in a horizontal line across the sheet one inch away from end (again not the side). Worms should be end-to-end. It's better to use longer gummy worms than the shorter ones seen here since they'll be easier to cut.
From the edge where you started with the worms and the one-inch space and roll the mix by lifting down underneath the mix and wax paper. Once you complete one roll around and pinning the worms in the middle. Cut away the roll from the rest of the mixture with large, sharp knife and set aside. Do the same process for the second roll.
You starting to see that this is another one of the easy recipes for kids that truly is a synch to create. In fact there is no baking involved.
Here's a completed roll of candy sushi.
Slice each roll into one-inch thick "sushi" rolls.
Wrap each sushi piece with a strip of fruit roll up or fruit leather. Choose different colors for variety.

TIP: For added taste you could mix some type of spice suchi as cinnamon and brown sugar into rice crisp mix before pressing into baking sheet.
