I decided on an ocean theme. One kid wants to be a shark another a penguin another an octopus and another Nemo. I know I can do a cute mishloach manos but can't figure out pull it together.

Can you creative ladies help me with ideas, please! I don't want to spend more than $5 each. I don't mind being crafty in putting it together.

Extra credit for ideas for kids, teachers and parents (like to bring something for the meal)

Well u can offer to bring fish for the parents meal. Can do a can of tuna, mayo packets and cracker packets in cellophane for neighbors (we do cute and simple/ cheap) or lox package with mini cream cheese and cracker packet but that costs more.

For teachers I sometimes do regular cutesy one with a check or I do a toy gift that matches the theme.

Kids can do the fishy snack bags (like golden fish type) fish jellies and a blue mando

Thanks ladies. Didnt think of giving actual fish. That's a great idea. Anyone have a cute fish/ocean one liner?

You can buy small fishbowls at dollar tree and fill with goldfish crackers, sour worms, small pebbles that look like gravel.... When I did this theme I also added Gefilte fish cookies. They are cookies that look exactly like Gefilte fish, they even get a slice of “carrot” on top.

For penguin:
I did for parents:
Made diff colored jello in sheet pans, then cut it into cubes, & layered with assorted colors unevenly, colors mixed, in a bowl it should look like ice. Put a voss water in center & attached pic of my child, looked like he was sitting on ice

For everyone I bought ice buckets, put in rock candy, with voss water & pic, looked like sitting on ice. Attached black & white mini sachet bags on handle & put in little things that were black or white.

Get a plastic narrow rectangle tray
fill with blue colored sugar (water) sprinkled with some jelly candy fish/star/turtles (there are so many cool ones)
Make 3 cupcakes
1 with orange icing (nemo), 1 with gray Icing(shark) , one with white Icing (penguin) - stick a toothpick with a pic of each kid in costume in to correct colored cupcake

For Teachers buy a cutsy ocean/beachy/hawai themed item, package with pinapple, coconut, pina colada mix and check

For your Parents you could make a cut fruit/ veggie platter in the shape of a fish (tons of ideas on pinterest)
Challah Shapped as fish
Or you could make mini deli rolls in the shape off fish Smile
Mazal Adar Dagim and all that

For kids juice box with these wrapper
