Football Birthday Party Food and Drink
Ready to serve some fun food and drink at your football birthday party?
This idea of using chip bags as bowls is so easy, and saves you from washing extra serving bowls, too! These juice boxes look like footballs — so easy, but a great way to keep the drinks themed. You’ll just need some brown card stock on hand.
While the kids are waiting in line for food, get them in the football party spirit with fun temporary tattoos!
Football Birthday Party Activities
For a football themed birthday party, I ran across lots of fun ideas to get kids (and adults) moving and laughing together!
In warmer weather, take your guests outside and play some rounds of football! You could play Hot Football (like Hot Potato). Have the kids 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. You have a winner!
If you’re partying indoors, take a peep at these ideas for some indoor games for football parties.
I love this twist on Pin the Tail on the Donkey — setting up this Wall Football would be fun!
