Play Football!

Materials Needed

  • A Football
  • Space outside to play
  • Playing is easy enough since most people at your party will already know how to play. Before the game divide up into teams and encourage everyone of all ages to participate. If you have kids playing you can play a lighthearted game of flag or (soft)touch football, if it’s just the guys, go all out with a rough and tumble game of football.

    It is not so much about who wins as it is about getting everyone’s blood pumping so when it is finally time for Super Bowl kick off (pregame seems to last for days) people are excited and ready for some football. If some people really do not want to play, get them to coach, referee or be cheerleaders.  Try and get the whole party involved in some way, your neighbors may even want to join in when they see all the fun you are having!

    If you plan for this in advance you can let you guests know so they can bring a quick change of clothes and/or shoes, too.

    Set up a Kidzone

    Materials Needed

  • A safe area for the kids to play
  • Games, coloring sheets, snacks
  • Babysitter (optional)
  • While not technically a game, if you are going to have children at your party it is a good idea to set up an area for them to play away from the TV watching hot spots. This can be anywhere they can play and enjoy themselves without being underfoot when the other “kids” are jumping up and down watching the game. Setup a table for them to use, have some chairs, maybe some place to lounge on the floor. Printout some Super Bowl themed word searches, word scrambles, or coloring pages. Provide some board games, puzzles and kid friendly snacks. If you have a spare tv you can even setup a video game system, or ask one of the guests with kids to bring theirs for the party.

    Letting the children have their own fun, in their own space, will not only allow them to enjoy the party more, but the adults will as well. If you are planning on having more than a few kids at your party you may even want to consider hiring a babysitter for the day to keep an eye on the children and keep them entertained. One of the parents might even have a responsible teen who is willing to do it for some extra money. Most parents will gladly kick in to help pay for this type of thing, and everyone will come away happy.
