My boys and husband are really into fishing. Several years ago we threw my middle son a fishing party. The kind that you rent a guide and actually fish. Be sure to check out the fun fishing party cupcakes and fishing party favors. I never know what to do for my tweens on Valentine’s Day so I thought I would incorporate one their favorite pastimes into this fun candy tackle box Valentine. Print out Valentine printables for an easy valentines like these tackle boxes or these gum themed valentines.
Simply look for a jewelry bead organizer at a craft store or Walmart. I like the smaller one as you can make multiple without having to buy too much candy. Obviously you can look at a sporting store as well in the fishing gear section of a Walmart.
Head to the candy section and buy some gummy worms, gummy fish or anything that would resemble bait or tackle. Let your imagination roam!
If you really want to get into the theme and your recipient loves fishing, you might want to pick up a package of bobbers too to add to the festive looks of this candy tackle box.
Fill each section with a different candy to make it look authentic. (well for my Type A fisherman at least)
Close the container and print out this free Tackle Box Valentine printable to attach to the top.
Attach the free printable tag with some twine (we went with bakers twine you can find anywhere these days) and the fun tackle boxes ready to give out this Valentine’s Day.
What a fun and simple Valentine for older boys or in my case my husband as well. The kids will have fun making these for their friends too. This candy tackle box would make a fun party favor for a fishing party too.
