Basketball Snack and Gift Ideas

My 11 year old recently finished up a fun basketball season, making it all the way to the final four!
With all the hard work from the team and the coaches, I put together a little goody bag of snacks for the boys and a few gifts for the coaches.

These snacks could also be used at the end of a game but also worked well as an end of season treat.

Here's what you'll need to make some of your own:

Large clear bags (got ours from Micahel's)
Orange Gatorade
Cheese and Peanut Butter crackers
Reeses Peanut Butter cups
Orange ribbon
Orange paper

Simply add all your goodies into the bag, punch a hole in the label, loop the ribbon through, tie off and viola!  Basketball goody bags that the kids will enjoy!  Also, for the label you can simply type the saying in Word or Google Docs and print.....

Next it was the coaches turn.  Each coach was given a gift card but to spruce it up a bit, I added a printable and candy bar to the gift bags.  I got the idea and printable for the label at Eighteen 25.

In addition to the gift cards, we also presented the coaches with a jar full of starburst candy, orange ones, of course, along with another printable.  There are so many fun ways to use starburst candy for coaches, teachers and friends.

Last, I picked up a basketball for each coach and had the boys from the team sign them.  Just a nice piece of memorabilia for the coaches!  Forgot to snap a picture of the signed balls but pretty straight forward and just another coach idea.

Finally, if you are looking for another treat, try these super simple basketball cupcakes.  I made this for the past 2 seasons and they always go over great.  Look good and taste yummy too!!
