If you haven’t yet heard (and how could you not, amidst all the deflate-gate drama), the Super Bowl is just over a week away. The Husband and I used to throw Super Bowl parties and go all out. Now that we’ve got day jobs and kids requiring us to get up at reasonable hours the next day; those parties are on hold.
But our boring schedules don’t keep me from enjoying all of the Super Bowl recipes, crafts, and free printables around the web. So, until we’re back into our Super Bowl party mode, here’s some fun inspiration for your next football party.
Game Day Food:
The first thing everyone thinks about for the SuperBowl is always the food, right? I love the idea of something simple like these sloppy dogs and sliders from Carolyn’s Homework, though that stuffed football pizza at Hungry Happenings looks pretty awesome too. If you’re looking for smaller bites, Tatertots and Jello has pulled together a pretty fantastic list of 28 easy appetizers; and I’m loving those football oreo truffles from The First Years Blog.
Game Day Crafts and Activities
I know that having football themed crafts isn’t necessary for enjoying the game, but it does make it a lot of fun for the little ones, doesn’t it? I know my kids would love to bust open a football shaped piñata like the one shared by Jo Lynne Shane or run around with their own giant foam finger and mini megaphone from Frog Prince Paperie. Simple, high-impact crafts are my favorite, and the no-sew table football field table runner from Growing Up Abel and DIY football plate from Crafting in the Rain fit the bill perfectly.
Sometimes I feel like the Super Bowl gets the short stick with printables. It’s just kind of shoved in between Christmas and Valentine’s Day with all their pretty and fancy freebies. But there are some awesome bloggers out there that have shared fun printables to get your Super Bowl party started. Just click on the links or the pictures above to get them!
