Tips for a Kid-Friendly Super Bowl Party with Crafts

It’s that time of year again. Super Bowl Sunday is quickly approaching. People are either excited or disappointed their team didn’t make it to the big game. My family is definitely disappointed but we enjoy watching football. Are you hosting a party this year but don’t know how to manage with the kids around? We’ve got your tips for a Kid-Friendly Super Bowl complete with crafts (of course!).

Here are some great Kid-Friendly Super Bowl tips to make sure your children are having a great time. Just remind everyone not to walk in front of the television.

Party games

Entertain the kids during commercials or halftime with some fun football games. They can play origami flick football, commercial bingo, or hut, hut, hike (same as duck, duck, goose).  Additionally, create a separate space to play board games that’s appropriate for all ages. If possible, use an empty room to have a fun tournament with a video game system like the Wii. The children can pair up in teams depending on age and ability.

Team spirit

Temporary tattoos and face paint are fun ways to get the kids excited about the game. These items can be purchased at your local party store. Set up a small station as if you were tailgating. Play the team fight song as you get ready for the big game. Make sure they are wearing their team colors or jersey.

Fun food

What’s Super Bowl without great food? I always look forward to eating all the delicious treats. Make sure to provide snacks and meals for everyone especially picky eaters. Whip up some fun food that’s shaped like a football. Kelly’s latest blog post is a great source to find fun recipes. Kids love to move around a lot and don’t tend to eat when they are busy. Create a snack table where they can grab their own food. Chips, crackers, and fruits are great finger foods for children.

Craft table

Set up a craft station for the kids. Put out football-themed printables and crayons. Host a contest for the best picture and winner get a small prize.  In addition to the printable activity, they can make diy pom poms or fingerprint football.
