I had a lot of Swedish Fish left over from our “candy fish swimming in blue jello” snack during our Ocean Unit, and came up with this idea to use them as an End of Year gift for the children. I put the Swedish Fish in a snack size zip lock bag, printed out the bag topper, folded it over, and stapled it to the top of the bag. This gift could also be made with Goldfish crackers.
To make these, feel free to use the printables I made below. Since my students are going to a new school next year, I made a printable that says “Congratulations! You’ll soon be swimming in a new school because you are O-FISH-ALLY a Kindergarten kid!”. Since some of you may not be sending your students to a new school, I also made one that only says “Congratulations! You are O-FISH-ALLY a Kindergarten kid!” Click the buttons below to download the printable you need.
Our paraprofessional and I bought sand buckets for every child, and she is painting their names on them with paint pens. We will put the Swedish Fish gift inside the buckets along with any other goodie bags or gifts the kids bring in for their friends.

I have received several requests to make the topper using First Grade in place of Kindergarten, and I will put that on my to do list. Thanks for the suggestion!
