Here are some fun Goldfish crackers games using different colors of Goldfish, candy melts, and a free printable tic tac toe game too! Great treats you can make with your kids as well as a game you can play with cheesy Goldfish crackers they all love!
When you look at a bag or box of Goldfish® crackers does it take you back to your childhood? I know they do for me! Riding my bike with friends holding a baggie full of those cheddar cracker snacks are the best times I tell you. 😉 Now that I am a Mom to 3, I buy them quite often. This weekend we decided to get creative and come up with Goldfish crackers games. (originally published 2/16)
Tic Tac Toe Printable
Below we have a link for you to print as many tic tac toe Goldfish crackers games sheets you would like. If your kids love it so much you could even laminate them to play over and over again without it getting icky. Use baby and regular or colored crackers to play so you can tell who’s markers are who’s.
Isn’t this a FUN (and yummy) way to use crackers!!?? Well this is just one activity. Since it is close to Valentine’s Day we decided to create a heart but there are endless possibilities once you make these yummy treats. This is what you will need to make this salty ‘n’ sweet Goldfish crackers treat!
All you need to do is Tic-Tac-Toe printable here to play the game above. Above is another fun idea we made with different colors, square pretzels and candy melts. You could use Hershey Kisses in the middle too if you preferred, or even rolo candies.
Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Cracker Game
Just take a quick trip to Walmart and pick up a few packages of Goldfish crackers. I used pretzel and the colors variety for these Goldfish cracker games.
The 30 oz. containers here are our favorite because they open and close easily and have a spout so my girls can pour some in a baggie for snacking themselves.

You will need some square pretzels as well which are in this same aisle. I used 2 different colors of candy melts (light and dark blue), those can be found in the cake decorating department in the party section of Walmart. Now let’s get going!
First I wanted to make sure I had enough of each color when I made my heart so I laid out the square pretzels on my countertop. I counted how many I needed for the outside and how many I would need to fill the inside.
Then I planned accordingly when I laid the colored candy melts on top of each piece.
Goldfish Cracker Recipe
I decided to line the outside of our heart with light blue candy melts and purple Goldfish® crackers, and use dark blue for the inside with a different color cracker. This is totally up to you, any way you do it they are delicious and fun to move around and make new pictures.
- Don’t fill your entire tray with these because the next step requires you to move quickly. You won’t be able to do much more than 40 or so at a time.
Now preheat your oven for 250 degrees and put these in for just 2 minutes, not much longer.
When you take them out quickly press 1 Goldfish® cracker on to each colored candy melt. Don’t PUSH, just place one on top and tap gently so it sticks.
The candy (chocolate) melt will begin to harden so you do want to move quickly. I allow my daughters to help with this part.
Now on to our favorite Goldfish crackers games that involves the crackers themselves and an “old fashioned” favorite. Fish Tic Tac Toe!
This is another one of our fun Goldfish cracker games that is easy to incorporate into a sleepover, party, or rainy day activity because once you have the crackers.
