We are a snack-happy kind of family. Particularly, we love snacks that can keep up with us on whatever adventure we may find ourselves in. Those adventures don’t have to be grand, however, like jet-setting or rock climbing. Sometimes, it’s the smallest journeys that make the strongest memories. And our Spring Chick Snack Clips are fun to take along on the journey!
Goldfish crackers are a snacking staple. Available in easy to grab multi-packs as well as resealable bags, they’re great to take on-the-go, too. Each flavorful cracker is sure to bring another smile to my kids’ faces, just like the time we spend together. Every Goldfish is another chance to explore. It goes without saying, though, that the best adventures happen when you’re with the best people. From digging for worms to riding our bikes around the neighborhood and a trip to the zoo, every day there’s a memory to be made and treasured.
All those Goldfish moments together are a great reason to smile.
I like to surprise my kids every now and then, as well. Taking that extra step is another easy way to make lasting memories. A simple way to do that is to include their favorite Goldfish in a fun Spring Chick Snack Clip! This is also a great Easter craft that the kids can help with, too.
We love the convenience of the Goldfish Multi-Packs. But they go quick! So when you run out of those bags, these Chick Snack Clips are a super cute alternative. And would go so well sitting in a lunchbox or even as an Easter party treat. They’re easy to make, too, with a clothespin, snack bags, yellow cardstock, orange construction paper, orange paint, and googly eyes. You’ll also need Goldfish, of course.
Chick Snack Clips
- wood clothespins
- yellow cardstock
- orange construction paper
- orange acrylic paint
- small oogly eyes
- Goldfish crackers
- glue stick
- cup or something in similar size
First, paint the clothespins orange. You can either paint the entire thing, or just where your fingers will squeeze it open as we did. Let dry. Using a cup with a rim that’s only slightly smaller than the clothespin, trace the circular rim of the cup onto a piece of yellow cardstock. Cut out.
Cut small squares from the orange paper and little feet shapes. Fold the squares diagonally, forming a beak, and trim any excess. Glue in place. Glue feet on the bottom of your chick shape, as well, and finish by gluing on small googly eyes. Glue chick shape onto clothespin, so just the slightest bit of orange sticks out from the top. Then, fill a snack baggy about a third of the way full of Goldfish crackers. Let out any air and separate into two even sides. Twist center a couple of times and clip with clothespin.
