Fishy Fishy!

Under the Sea- Yogurt Snack



  • Granola  
  • Plain Greek nonfat yogurt  
  • Blue food coloring  
  • Dried Mango  
  • Honey 
  • Gummy fish and/or circle shaped gummies  
  • Graham Cracker flavored goldfish shaped crackers  
  • Clear plastic cups  
  • Stickers with an ocean theme  
  • Toothpicks 


  1. In small bowl mix the amount of yogurt you need with a few drops of blue food coloring. You will need about 3/4 cup of yogurt per person. You can add more or less food coloring depending on how blue you want the yogurt to be. Swirl in a very small amount of honey to add some sweetness.   
  2. In a plastic cup, pour a small amount of granola into the bottom to make “sand”. Spoon blue yogurt mixture on top until desired amount of yogurt is in the cup.  
  3. Cut the shape of a sun from dried mango. It doesn’t have to be perfect or extremely detailed. Poke a toothpick slightly into the sun and then put the other end of the toothpick into the yogurt. This should help the sun stand up.  
  4. Place gummy fish and graham cracker shaped fish on top of your blue yogurt ocean.   
  5. Decorate your cups before (or while) you eat your snack! 

LIFE GUARD:  A life guard works at beaches, rivers and swimming pools where they ensure the safety of swimmers, and water sports participants. Lifeguards make sure that all water rules are followed. They learn CPR and first aid to help save lives in and around the water. 

Lifeguard’s make about 22,000 dollars per year.  


Here’s What You’ll Need for the Human Ring Toss Game:

3 inflatable pool rings per team – our rings are called 36″, but they really only measure 31″x31″.  

The inside ring is about 16″. I bought 6 – (3 for each team of 2 teams) 

That’s seriously it! – FYI – they make giant pool rings for adults! 

Instructions: Here’s how you play the Human Ring Toss Game 

  • Pick your teams and divide the rings evenly between teams 
  • Decide on  distance away from the person to ring that’s challenging, but doable – we settled on about 6 ft. away 
  • To ensure that there is no cheating – It might be a good idea to place a marker down for the person that you’re going to ring  and for the people throwing rings to stand on or behind 
  • When you’re ready, start ringing your human! 
  • *The human has to stand on their mark, but can bend at the waist and point arms up in the direction of the pool ring to make it easier to ring them – to make it more challenging for older kids and adults you can disregard this variation 
  • Rings  count as 2 points for a full ring and 1 point for a pool ring that is leaning on touching the target/human
  • First team to get to 21 points wins!

Have Fun!
