Football Birthday Party Ideas >> Food & Drink Ideas
The possibilities for party food are endless and you don't have to spend hours in the kitchen. Just serve all of your child's favorite party treats. Set out bowls of chips, popcorn, and pretzels. Or choose single-serve bags for even more ease. Make mini sandwiches as the main course or order pizza. For beverages, you can choose single-serve bottles and cans, or use economical large bottles. You can serve drinks in fun football cups. For the ultimate cake, consider a football-shaped confection. Your party guests will love it.
Football Birthday Party Ideas >> Party Activities
Instead of playing hot potato, play hot football! Ask kids to stand in a circle and pass around a football as music plays. When the music stops, the child holding the football is out. Continue until there's only one child left – the winner! If the weather's warm enough, try an outdoor game. Have an adult hold up two hoola hoops, and kids take turns throwing a soft football through them. Whoever scores the most goals wins! Plan on a football piñata to end the party festivities!
We also love these football corn hole bean bag toss games which can continue to provide hours of outdoor fun long after the party is over.
