Camping Theme Party Favors, Fishing Snack

There aren’t many photos to go with this post, so I apologize in advance. We got so busy that I forgot to take a minute to take some good ones before they are called handed out!  There were a hit and everyone took off with them so fast!

You will need:

Goldfish crackers

Long pretzel rods

Twizzlers pull and peel licorice

Plastic cups

The steps for this are so simple, the hardest part will be pulling apart the strands of licorice.  The pull and peel pulls apart, but be gentle or they will rip (we learned that the hard way several times).  Go slow and you will get best results.

In your plastic cup, poor some goldfish crackers.  I got one of the really large, milk carton style boxes and got a lot of cups out of them.  This was also for our blue and gold banquet, so we wanted a lot.  If you are just doing it for a small party a regular size box will do just fine.

Tie a strand of licorice around one end of your pretzel rod.  Not a whole piece, just a single strand from the big piece of licorice. Tie it gently or it will rip and break.  Now just rest the pretzel rod on the top of your plastic cup with the licorice piece hanging into the cup.

The kids loved them and thought they were so fun!  This is great for any party, but especially a camping theme party or event!

Rainbow Goody Bags, Made From a Coffee Filter!

Here is a great last minute goody bag idea.  This would be great for classroom handouts for Saint Patrick’s Day, a child’s birthday party or any event that rainbow goody bags would liven the day!

You will need

Coffee filters

Markers (not Sharpie or permanent)

Squirt bottle of water

Something to set the coffee filter on to protect your table top

Candy for the inside

Twine, string or ribbon to tie bag shut

Color in sections of your coffee filters.  Doesn’t have to be super clean or perfectly colored, the water will help hide all of that.  If you are doing rainbow colors you will want to go in rainbow order (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)  I left out indigo, I didn’t have one that color.

Once you color in sections and your coffee filter is covered in marker, take your water bottle and lightly mist the coffee filter.  Be sure there is something under your coffee filter so that there is no marker or water on your table top.

The water will help the marker to run and the colors will mix on the edges.  It will also help the colors smooth out hiding all of your marker lines.  Turns out really lovely!

Let it set out and dry.  Once it is completely dry you can wrap a couple of wrapped candies in the middle and tie it with a small string.

I would be sure that the candy is wrapped.  I am sure if you use nontoxic markers you would be completely safe, but just to be on the safe side, I recommend sticking with candies in wrappers.  For Saint Patrick’s day I put some Andes mints inside.  Some gold coin chocolates, or skittles would also be great!
