Some Fun Activities Hayley and I do with Goldfish® Princess crackers!

*I’m sharing how Hayley and I do fun activities with Goldfish Princess crackers as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #GoldfishTales*

In our household, Goldfish® is the snack of choice! It is really hard to find snacks for my 4 year old Zane to enjoy because of his severe peanut allergy but Goldfish crackers  are a snack choice that not only he, but his older sister,  can enjoy too! Through the years, Hayley has been not only eating Goldfish but she also loves playing with these kids snacks, while she eats!

Recently we were introduce to the Goldfish Princess Crackers and they are a huge hit in our household. Seriously, how can they not be a hit with Hayley who is the #1 princess fan ever! The girl lives and breathes princesses from her room being in a princess theme to choosing foods that only a true princess would eat.Screen Shot 2015-05-11 at 11.25.14 PM

While she snacks away on these delicious crackers, my wheels are always turning to ways I can make eating and snacking fun. I thought about it and since she absolutely loves math, I figured why not teach her addition and subtracting using the Goldfish Princess Crackers. Of course, her mommy could also partake by eating one or two of the crackers when we are dealing with subtraction. Shhh… Don’t tell my husband!Screen Shot 2015-05-11 at 11.25.39 PM

When the education part of the day was done, it was then all about the fun! Goldfish Princess Crackers + Coloring=Pure Fun! I figured to go along with the princess theme, we could draw a big princess crown using crayons and create the border with Goldfish crackers. This project was fun because it allowed her to use her imagination while eating some delicious snacks.

We drew out the board pieces and then used the Goldfish crackers and small pieces of apple instead of the traditional X and Y. Guess who won every single time-Hayley! This is a really cute idea that allows you to take Tic-Tac-Toe to another level while allowing your kiddos to have a snack at the same time. Once you are ready for the new board, simply eat the pieces!

    I love the counting game, and I love how you balance the tic tac toe with grapes- great ideas! I, personally, stack them on the cat until she wakes up- but that’s because I’m a crazy cat lady.

  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    My little guy loves to play with his goldfish, too. He loves the colored ones and separates them to play with by color.

  3. Shauna says

    These are fabulous ideas. I actually just pulled out the gold fish to help my Little Man with his math, ha! Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. Amy Desrosiers says

    I think using Gold Fish as a craft activity is a great idea! I bet my kids would love using these!

  5. Ann Bacciaglia says

    My kids love to snack on Goldfish Crackers. They come in so many great flavors. It is handy to put in lunches.

  6. Lisa Bristol says

    Goldfish crackers are a great snack. I will have to pick up some princess ones for the next time my friend brings her little ones over.
