There’s nothing more fun than getting together with friends and family to cheer on your favorite football team in the big game. While the adults are shouting at the television, however, kids could likely feel left out. Our Snack Field Goal Catapult brings the rousing game to the table, during commercial breaks of course, and is a great way to incorporate children into the festivities. And you get a yummy snack in the process.
Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® are the perfect snack for our Snack Field Goal Catapult. A winning touchdown for parents and kids, Goldfish crackers are baked with real cheese for a feel-good, wholesome snack that tastes great! Right now, you can also enter to win $5000 with your child by creating your own Goldfish Tales Animation Xperience. Find more details at GoldfishSmiles.com!
We picked up both a Goldfish Cheddar 30 oz. Carton and Xtra Cheddar Flavor Blasted Goldfish 30 oz. Carton while at Target. I’m so glad I knew about the Target Cartwheel digital coupon offer for 10% off bulk Goldfish! These bulk containers are sure to go quick in our house!
Our Snack Field Goal Catapult are super easy to put together for complete Game Day ease. And while our faces are painted, our favorite jersey’s on, and we’re ready for some football, the kids are learning more about STEM while having fun, too. How far and how fast will the Goldfish fly?
All you need are regular craft sticks, rubber bands, large straws and bendy straws, plastic spoons, as well as plastic cups and Goldfish.
Most of our catapult is held together by rubber bands. Quite a few rubber bands, actually. Don’t worry, though, this isn’t complicated at all.
Then, gather your game players. You can either play with 2 players and place the scoring cup on a table to catch the Goldfish crackers, or 2 teams of 2 players each. That way, one person on a team can catapult and the other can catch the Goldfish crackers with the cup.
Whoever has the most Goldfish crackers in their cup at the end of the game is the winner! Except really, everyone wins because everyone gets to eat their cup of Goldfish crackers at the end. It really is The Snack That Smiles Back®!
Supplies needed (for each):
- 9 regular craft sticks
- 1 large craft stick
- plastic spoon
- 8 small rubber bands
- 2 bendy straws
- 1 large, milkshake straw
- 2 plastic cups
- Goldfish crackers
- hot glue (or stronger for extra hold)
First, gather 5 craft sticks and wrap the ends with a rubber band so they’re secure. Take 2 more craft sticks and wrap one end with a rubber band. Insert the 5 craft sticks inside the 2 craft sticks. Slide as far as you can against the rubber band end. Wrap another band around where the craft sticks meet to secure.
Take a plastic spoon and secure the top with a rubber band. Wrap the bottom with a rubber band as well, around the same area you wrapped to secure the 2 sets of craft sticks together. This way, it’s double wrapped. Wrap the whole thing onto one of the large craft stick with 2 rubber bands.
Fold the smaller end of a bendy straw so that it inserts into the other bendy straw. Take 2 craft and place the inserted section of the bendy straw into the tip of the craft sticks and wrap with a rubber band to secure.
Finally, cut a piece of the milkshake straw to the size of the craft sticks. Apply a generous amount of hot glue to the other side of the large craft and adhere the bottom of the straw. Let dry. Insert craft sticks, raise bendy straws for your field goal posts, get out your plastic cups with Goldfish crackers, and play!
