Each summer the twins' attend a swim program. The sessions run four mornings a week for two weeks. At the end of the two week period, the instructors host a little party at the swimming pool where the kids are presented with their certificate of completion and parents contribute a pot luck snack or drinks.

We made these fun treat bags with Goldfish Puffs to take for all the kids:

Pool Party Treats with Goldfish Puffs #makeitgopuff
Aren't they cute?  The kids sure loved them.

What you need:

  • Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Puffs
  • Blue card stock
  • Clear candy bags with rounded bases
  • Bakers twine
  • Hole punch, scissors, X-ACTO knife and pencil

Begin by tracing around the clear candy bag. Now, ask your child what it looks like, and when she says "a vase mummy" adjust it a little so it looks like a goldfish bowl.

Pool party treat tutorial
Cut out your goldfish bowl and use that to make a second one along with a mirror image of it and about 1.25 inches of straight space in-between (see image on the right above).

Make a circle in the center of just one side of the goldfish bowl. Cut out and trace around this new template to make all of the blue paper goldfish bowl treat bags. Use the X-ACTO knife to cut out the circle in the center.

You can fit two of these on a square piece of scrapbook size card stock.

Fold the bowl on either side of the straight section in the middle so that the bowl will stand up (see image below left).

Fill the clear treat bags with Goldfish Puffs. Place the bag in the center of the blue paper goldfish bowl and hold it closed while you hole punch either side of the top. Tie the top with a piece of bakers twine and then cut off the excess clear bag.

How to make pool party treats for kids
Kids are going to love these.

So far we've only tried the new Mega Cheese Goldfish Puffs and they are pretty darn tasty (my kids are also kind of picky when it comes to treat flavors which is why I haven't purchased the other varieties yet). They are kind of a cross between crackers and cheese puffs. We ended up using two bags to make our treats. I had purchased three bags and the kids devoured the last bag the day after the pool party.

Goldfish Puffs
Goldfish Puffs are available at Target. You can purchase them in the large chip-style bags above or in smaller individual serving size bags. You can read more about them (and see photos of the kids at their pool party) on my Google+ story.

Hi Everyone! I hope I am not stepping on any toes but I was able to make a template for this fish bowl idea. I just bought a Cricut machine and this template worked like a charm! If you want to grab my template, just click on this link https://app.box.com/s/2ddszcykrlmkse6oboa1fdcewkychnib

Good luck!

It is a little choppy on the sides as it was a fish bowl I found online and then brought it into Photoshop and mirrored it and added the cut out for the hole.
