Back to school is a month away. I think we’re all excited for it this year. Since we moved at the end of the last school year, my kids are now ready to meet some new friends. I’m going to be having a baby next month, as well, and I have to say I’m ready for that to happen, too. A lot of changes all around! We’re going to stay prepared to make the most of this time, though, with Goldfish® crackers.
Goldfish® crackers are a snack I feel good about serving my kids. They’re always baked with real cheese and no artificial flavors or preservatives. In fact, the colors are sourced from plants, such as annatto extracted from the reddish seeds of the Achiote Tree. Which is great to know and all for the parents out there, but really, my kids just love their cheesy cracker goodness.
We picked up a box of Goldfish® Snacks Multi Packs from our local grocery store.
Not only are they great as a quick snack, but the individual packs are perfect for on-the-go and wherever a kid’s after school adventures may take them. Even on those days when their after school adventures only take them as far as our craft room for our 5 Favorite Back to School Craft Projects!
There is no better time than now to start getting excited for back to school. These Cardboard Roll Duck Tape Pencils are a fun craft to get the creativity flowing! You could even store a small bag of Goldfish® crackers in the cardboard roll for a snack happy hiding spot!
Another favorite are our DIY Chalkboard Clip Boards. These are great to keep around the house for homework, after school activities, and just general daily reminders.
For the lunchbox or more after school snack ideas, our Emoji Pudding Cups are sure to be a snacking hit!
I’m not sure if it’s just me, but googly eyes make everything fun, even a simple plastic bag for our Cereal Snack Mix. Add Goldfish crackers to pretzels and your favorite cereal for a quick snack mix idea.
Last, but not least, on this list of our 5 Favorite Back to School Craft Projects are these Apple Paper Plate Snack Boxes. Begin with a small red paper plate, available at your local dollar store. Then, make a few snips. Fold and tape into a box shape. Add a couple leaves made with green construction paper on top along with a brown pipe cleaner stem, and you have the perfect way to greet the kids after school with a great snack!
- small red paper plate
- green construction paper
- brown pipe cleaner
- hole punch
Start with a small red paper plate. Cut 4 slots like the diagram shows.
Fold along the cuts and wrap the paper plate around itself into a box shape. With clear tape, tape to secure the box. If needed, you could always wrap a bit of red ribbon or red tape around the outside for extra security.
Use the hole punch to punch a small hole on top. Fold a brown cleaner in half and slide through the hole. Bend and shape for the stem.
Cut 2 leaf shapes from the green construction paper and tape or glue behind the stem.
