Ready In:




  • Fill prepared celery stalks with your choice of cream cheese or cheese spread.
  • Add the goldfish crackers on top of cream cheese or cheese spread to look like fish swimming.
  • For fun, you could always use a flavored cream cheese or add something to it for your choice of flavors. To make it even more fun, try tinting the cream cheese with a little blue food coloring to make it look like water.
  • Enjoy!

  1. FUN!! These are so fun and the children were able to fill their own rivers using plastic butter knifes and then toping with pizza flavored gold fish. Even the adults enjoyed this cute afternoon snack. Thanks for the giggles.
  2. What a cute idea! These were a lot of fun to make and a big hit. Thanks for posting.
  3. These were the first things noticed and devoured at my daughter's first princess tea party. They loved them, thanks!
  4. i love this snack! we made these for one of our church's VBS snacks....we tinted the cream cheese "water" blue with food coloring and the kids LOVED it! i thought they were super good!
  5. *Reviewed for Zaar World Tour 3* My daughters loved these. An easy to prepare snack that was fun. We used 'Dixie Drumsticks' as our fish. I asked my eldest daughter to find me something blue for the water in our photograph...she returned with her swimmers.


Hey there! I am the wife of my dh, Steve, to whom I've been married a very short 12yrs. I am also the SAHM of three boys (11yo and 4yo at home, 23yo on his own). My middle insists that you know he is #57 in the picture, the first player facing you. LOL I graduated from Ball State University with a BS in Pre-Professional Psychology, which I get use of here at home frequently. I enjoy entering local bakeoffs and contests, creating handmade cards and am active in my local MOPS group. I have a extensive collection of cookbooks, but have found that Zaar has taken care of my appetite for any hands on cookbooks. I just love to bake, especially for the high school football team here during the fall. It is my favorite time of the year......sweaters, bonfires, leaves, pumpkins, caramel apples, football, all the stuff about fall is fun! Thanks for checking out my "about me" page and I look forward to seeing you around on the boards. <a href=""><img border="0" src="" alt="web site hit tracking"></a><a href="">Staples Office</a> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="">
