Hi there! It is always so fun to be here at Skip to My Lou, especially for the fun Teacher Appreciation Series! The idea I am sharing today is super cute and it should only take 5 minutes to put together- yay!

All you need are the following materials:

Here is how you make it:

  1. Print and cut out your free printable. Using your XActo Knife, cut out the fish bowl on the printable.
  2. Fill a plastic bag with Sweedish Fish Candies.
  3. Fold over the top of the printable a crease it to make a flap on the back.
  4. Insert the plastic bag under the flap and staple the printable to the plastic bag.

And that’s it!

The printable comes with two different designs. The one featured above, and one that doesn’t require cutting out any fish bowl with an XActo Knife.

If you want to use the second one, simply print it and staple it to the bag of Sweedish Fish, like so:
