With Championship weekend over and the Super Bowl teams decided, now is a good time to start thinking about a super bowl party. More often than not this includes things like figuring out decorations and planning a menu. But if you have kids around, you might want to include them in the planning process as well. By organizing a few kid friendly games , your super bowl party can easily become a kid friendly super bowl party.
First, let’s talk about those decorations. You could go with an overall football theme by purchasing football balloons and decorating tables with football confetti. Serve food on football shaped trays, football shaped bowls to hold snacks and use football themed dessert plates and drinking cups. Other options include going with a team theme depending on if you’re a fan of the Seattle Seahawks or the New England Patriots. Birthday Express also has plenty of ideas for ready to go Football themed games to play at your party. Or, if you’re like me and wait until the last minute to pick up decorations, you can also check out Amazon for an amazing selection of football themed party decor. I know that with Prime, I’ll have my stuff here in two days guaranteed.
So now that we’ve talked about how we’re decorating for this kid friendly super bowl party, let’s talk about some food and activities.

One of my favorites as far as games go? Playing bingo. I have created three printable bingo cards (and included one blank for you to edit your own) in a .doc format and in .pdf format. (To save, right click and save as). Normally, I only share the .pdf version but I figured if you have a word processing software program, that this would be easier to edit that way.
For us, this year, the only child at home will be Squeaker so I’m not sure as to how much we’ll do for the super bowl. Last year it was pretty low key as I watched more for the game… and then the highly entertaining half time show. This year, however, I have no interest in the half time show… but I will proudly be cheering on the New England Patriots.

My family does a big Super Bowl party every year, and it never crossed my mind to include kid friendly activities. What a great idea!
