Goldfish Summer Gift Holder

Goldfish Summer Gift Holder and Giveaway!

Goldfish® crackers remind me of such wonderful childhood memories. We always had them around! The taste brings back visions of my stress free, fun loving, warm and sunny days of the past. Today’s craft embraces the happiness that comes along with what we all feel when we munch on Goldfish crackers. With summer just around the corner, my kids and I grabbed some craft foam, some Goldfish crackers, and calmly worked around the table on these adorable Summer Gift Holders. They are perfect for the end of the school year! Plus, I have a $100 Visa giveaway for one lucky Goldfish cracker lover!

Summer Tans and Goldfish in my Hands. A Goldfish gift holder and free printable. I love this easy DIY summer gift idea!

We decided to join in on the fun and create something that shares how much we love the cheddar crackers through words and an easy to make sun shaped cracker holder. Want to see what we did to help inspire your entry in the Goldfish Tales giveaway?

You will need:

  • Orange sheets of craft foam
  • A plastic sandwich baggie
  • Scissors
  • 2 circle stencils to trace. One big and one slightly smaller (tracing around cups work great for this!)
  •  Goldfish cheddar crackers
  • Your free “Summer Tans & Goldfish in my Hands” printable (seen below)
  • White glue (or glue gun for moms & dads)
  • Hole punch
  • String

Summer Tans and Goldfish in my Hands. A Goldfish gift holder and free printable. I love this easy DIY summer gift idea!

To assemble your Goldfish gift holder:

  1. Trace 2 large circles in the orange craft foam and cut them out. This is your base.
  2. Trace a smaller circle on one of your large orange circles.
  3. Cut out the small circle that you just traced on the large circle, creating and empty space in the middle (mom or dad can use an X-Acto knife to start the initial cut). This is your border.
  4. Cut out 8 small sun rays in the orange craft foam.
  5. Place a small handful of Goldfish crackers on the base circle.
  6. Place a plastic baggie over the Goldfish crackers and attach it with hot glue. Hot glue works the fastest!
  7. Cut the extra edges of the baggie off around the base.
  8. Glue the sun rays on the very outer edge of the base (see in the photos above).
  9. Glue the border on top.
  10. Punch a hole in the “Summer tans & Goldfish in my hands” printable and tie it on with some string.
