These fun mermaid ombre blue semi-handmade snack tubs are filled with under the sea snack mix for a mermaid themed party.

Disclosure: I’m sharing this fun Mermaid Munch movie night project as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #GoldfishTales

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile now, you will know that I have a slight obsession with themed snacks and treats, especially for movie nights. I think they are so much fun, and watching the kids’ faces light up when I show them what they’ll be snacking on is well and truly worth the little extra effort.

So I was inspired to make this fun themed snack for a mermaid-themed movie night.

Isn’t it fun? Those pink Goldfish® Princess crackers make the snack mix even more fun.

How to make a mermaid party snack tub


  • Snack cartons (or paper bags)
  • Card stock in 3 colors
  • Circle punch (or trusty old scissors and something circular to trace around)
  • Glue stick


  • Goldfish Princess crackers
  • Kettlecorn
  • White chocolate chips
  • Blue candy (such as sixlets)
  • Sprinkles – I used yellow stars and gold sprinkles

How to make

Use your circle punch to punch out circles in card stock.

You’ll need a lot of circles … again, this is a great project for kids to help with.

Attach the circles in a pattern onto your treat container using the glue stick until all sides are covered.

In a bowl, combine the ingredients, gently tossing with a spoon until it’s all mixed together.

Spoon the ingredients into the treat containers and serve.

Enjoy your movie night!
