Fish Dollar Store Valentine
We have given you a number of free Printables for Valentine’s Day including our favorite Hooked On You Bag Topper. We decided to go the fish direction again with this You’re a Great Catch Fish Dollar Store Valentine Craft. Grab all your supplies at the Dollar Store and make these cute valentines for your friends. You can use the printable for other things if this isn’t your cup of tea. We personally love these adorable Goldfish toys – how cute are those? Tie the printable with a Curling Ribbon as if the fish were hooked!
You’re a Great Catch Valentine Supplies:
- 1 package of Goldfish Snack Crackers (we chose a package of rainbow colors)
- 4 Sandwich Bags, fold-top
- 1 Box Mike and Ike Candy
- 4 Wooden Clothespins
- 2 Blue Pipe Cleaners
- 4 Tiny Rubber bands
- 4 Googly Eyes, self-stick
- 4 Small Sheets Foam, any colors
- Hot Glue Gun
- Black Permanent Marker
- Curling Ribbon
- You’re A Great Catch Printable (see below)
You’re a Great Catch Valentine Directions:
First you will make your fish hooks. Cut the pipe cleaners in half and shape each one into a fish hook. Hot glue each one onto a clothespin.
Then, separate the goldfish by color, you should have 4 different colored piles. If you went with all orange Goldfish, you can skip this step.
Take one color of fish and put them into a baggie, push them towards the front side. Take a small amount of the candy and put them into the baggie towards the back corner. Take the small rubber band and tie it around the baggie so the goldfish and candy are separated. The goldfish are the fish body and the candy end is the tail. Repeat this step with the other 3 colors of goldfish.
Wrap the excess baggie top around the rubber band and clip a clothespin over it to hold it. It should look like a little fish with a fish hook on it.
Next, cut out 8 different color foam pieces for the fins. You’ll need 2 pieces for each fish. Have one fin be a little larger than the other and glue together to create one multi-color fin. Then hot glue each fin on towards the bottom of the fish.
Place 1 eye at the front end of the fish and draw on a smile with your marker.
While your eyes dry, print out You’re A Great Catch Printable (see below). Attach to the bag between the paperclip hook or tie on with ribbon.
Enjoy these fun little snack bags!
