It’s hard to believe but back to school will be here before we know it. I have 2 kids who are in summer camp right now. Whether summer or back to school, though, having kids means lots of snacks. Keep the fun going with our Go Fish Snack Bags!
We’ve made other kinds of snack clips before. Our Spring Chick Snack Clips are a fun idea during spring time, and we’ve all seen the butterfly snack clips. These Go Fish Snack Bags are another fun option, a craft and yummy snack mix in one!
To make our Go Fish Snack Bags you will need the fold-top style sandwich bags, wood clothespins, blue pipe cleaners, tiny rubber bands, googly eyes, foam, a hot glue gun, and black marker. Fill your Go Fish Snack Bags with a mix of rainbow color Goldfish and Mike and Ike Candy. And go fishing for snacks!

- 4 wooden clothespins
- 2 blue pipe cleaners
- 4 tiny rubber bands
- 4 googly eyes, self-stick
- 4 small sheets foam – assorted colors
- hot glue gun
- black marker
- 1 pkg. Goldfish colors
- 1 box Mike and Ike Candy
These directions will make 2 snack bags. First cut the pipe cleaners in half and shape each one into a fish hook. Hot glue each one onto a clothespin.
Separate the goldfish by color, you should have 4 different colored piles.
Take one color of fish and put them into a baggie, push them towards the front side. Take a small amount of the candy and put them into the baggie towards the back corner. Take the small rubber band and tie it around the baggie so the goldfish and candy are separated. The goldfish are the fish body and the candy end is the tail. Repeat this step with the other 3 colors of goldfish.
Wrap the excess baggie top around the rubber band and clip a clothespin over it to hold it. It should look like a little fish with a fish hook on it.
Cut out 8 different color foam pieces for the fins. You’ll need 2 pieces for each fish. Have one fin be a little larger than the other and glue together to create one multi-color fin. Then hot glue each fin on towards the bottom of the fish.
Place 1 eye at the front end of the fish and draw on a smile with your marker. Enjoy these fun little snack bags! Have you seen our Gone Fishing Raspberry Slushies, too? And our Paper Plate Magnetic Fishing Game. Then, be sure to check out more of our back to school ideas at Our Kid Things!
