Make your own football game at home
I grabbed a few dollar store green baskets and cones. Created a field with masking tape and let the kids practice their touchdown dance.
A few dollar tree finds for some inexpensive game day playing. Pull out anything football related that your kids have collected and gather it all for the big day.
These plastic shot glasses were used as “players” and then stacking challenges.
Turn your corn hole game into a football themed game and stick it outside for the kids (and adults to play)
Pull out those legos and let the kids build their own football field.
Sneak in Education
Use it as a chance to sneak in some educational activities. I used football easter eggs and hid letters inside, this year it’s sight words and math. Older kids could do predictions and much more.
Coloring pages for kids can be found here or just search “football coloring pages” on Google and print away.
Let kids decorate
Kids love to celebrate all holidays and events. Why not keep them busy while you are cooking and prepping by printing out some things for them to decorate with?

While some people watch the game, some watch the commercials or halftime show, they all eat the snacks. Especially kids. Over the years I have used a football shaped cut out to make sandwiches or cheese slices and put them on a tray. Check out recipes on our Pinterest here.
Kids love balloons. You can create a goal post with yellow balloons, footballs with brown balloons or grab some letters for the team names, I chose LVII for this year since it is in Arizona.
