As you create each TextBox use AddHandler() to "wire up" the Click() event to a handler.

Make sure you're using the correct event....not sure if you literally want the Click() event or if you actually need the MouseDown() or the GotFocus() events?

At any rate, you can follow this example and adjust the event and signature as necessary:
Public Class Form1

    Private TextBoxes As New List(Of TextBox)

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        For i As Integer = 1 To 10
            Dim tb As New TextBox
            tb.Name = "MyTextBox" & i
            tb.Text = "TextBox #" & i
            AddHandler tb.Click, AddressOf TB_Click
            FlowLayoutPanel1.Controls.Add(tb)
            TextBoxes.Add(tb)
        Next
    End Sub

    Private Sub TB_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim TB As TextBox = CType(sender, TextBox)
        MessageBox.Show("TextBox Name: " & TB.Name & vbCrLf & "TextBox Text: " & TB.Text)
    End Sub

End Class
