I Love the Fall! I love everything about it. I love the warm days followed by cool nights. It is the time when you can wear shorts and a sweatshirt… it’s the best. I love the colors of the trees and the smell of the leaves as they fall to the ground. The best part of Fall and my all time favorite thing… FOOTBALL.
I played the game from the time I was eight, all the way through college. Each year, I look forward to weekends and spending time with family and friends while we watch the game, catch up, eat good food & just hang out. We like to have friends over, prep a veggie tray, grab some hummus from the store & let everyone dig in.
I love rooting for our favorite team and wearing my team colors proudly. I love teaching my kids about the game, too.
During the game, I know we need to have some activities for the kids to do as well. So we make sure that we always have things for them to do. They are great for the kids and they are also great for the big kids to do as well. They are great for everyone to do.
Here are some of my favorite football activities to do with your kids during football games:
If we have junk food- they eat junk food. If we have vegetables- they eat vegetables. We buy Boar’s Head Hummus and the kids just dive in.
Boar’s Head Hummus is made with premium steamed chickpeas (it’s listed as their first ingredient), toppings, and spices that are Non-GMO Project Verified, all-natural, and gluten-free. They don’t use MSG, and they don’t use artificial preservatives (like Potassium sorbate), flavors, or colors. I like the Boar’s Head Traditional Hummus and the Boar’s Head Traditional Simplicity Organic Hummus.
Our kids love this one: Boar’s Head Everything Bagel Hummus
TIP 1: While our daughter loves the look of the Roasted Red Pepper just as it comes, we’ve found that it tastes even better when we mix it before serving, to give you more flavor with each bite.
TIP 2: Boar’s Head also make an AWESOME Boar’s Head Dark Chocolate Dessert Hummus that our kids love! It’s a great snack to keep on hand! The Boar’s Head Chocolate Mint Dessert Hummus is my wife’s favorite!
- Football Corn Hole
With the game being played with 2 teams it’s perfect to play. You can make the teams just like the game you are watching. Like the Steelers vs. Ravens.
- Paper Football
If you forget this fun game, it is when you fold a piece of square paper to make a triangle and play it on a table. Each person getting 2-3 tries to get the ball (paper) to the edge with our it falling off. If it hangs over you get a touchdown and then have to kick an extra point. A coffee table works the best for this game. It was also the way we used to text back in the day.
- Pin the Football on the Quarterback
This is like Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but with a football player & footballs. I just draw a football player, the kids decorate it & then we cut out these footballs that I made.
You are welcome to download them, as well. I hope you enjoy it! Our kids love when we play this as a family.
