Plan on at least a few party games just in case there is a lull in the conversation or the football game is a blowout. If you are watching a game on television, let your guests make the calls — provide individual penalty flags – just picture a room full of people tossing their flags all at once! Madden NFL is always good for hours of football fun. For the young at heart, pinatas are a great way to end any party. Years ago we met the fellow who created Fiki finger Football and have been obsessed ever since! And printable games are quick, economical, and easy to execute party fillers. Continue Reading →

How the game is played…
The game is fun, because each person gets to select a wrapped gift, unwrap it and then possibly lose it to someone else and have to select again. Being able to select from unwrapped gifts or “steal” a gift someone is holding is what makes this game so much fun. Continue Reading →

What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties – the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children's parties where we plan and schedule every minute). And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there and realize things aren't going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic and strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That's where these Halloween printable games come in extraordinarily handy. In just a few minutes, we can change the course of the evening. Don't get caught in a scary spot. Plan ahead this Halloween by having a stack of pre-printed games ready at a moments notice. Have a fun-filled Halloween and party hearty!
One more thought … many of these print and play games work great in a classroom. Some are even customizable so you can tailor them to your lesson or set them aside for your classroom Halloween celebration.
If you’ve been put in charge of hosting this year’s Super Bowl party, or any football themed party, having the right mix of food, entertainment, and company will keep the party flowing in between passes and touchdowns.
While typically during any “Bowl” party, guests will be focused on the football game, there will always be those commercial breaks, half-times, or the guests who come for the food more than watching the actual game itself. For situations like this, providing additional entertainment, like printable football games is a great option. Plus, you can literally purchase and print them out 5 minutes before the party starts.
If kids are invited to the party, most likely they aren’t going to want to watch an entire 3 hour football game. Having a fun game option for them, like a pin the football game, will give them a break and give them a chance to just be kids. Plus, recruiting the adults, blindfolding them, and making them pin the football on the quarterback would most likely be worthy of recording and posting to YouTube, too.
And for the grown-ups, even if you don’t have a designated time at the party to play games, you could always set out a few trivia themed printable football games. Make sure the guests know that prizes will be awarded to the guest who gets the most answers correct by the end of the game. This will encourage some fun competition during the party. And who doesn’t love the chance to win a prize?
Don't forget to print out a few printable patriotic games for your Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day Celebration Parties. They are not very expensive so even if you don't end up using them this time, you will have unlimited printouts for 90 days which takes you way past Labor Day.
We love to have these games on hand just in case … just in case it rains, just in case the little kids (or the big kids) get antsy, just in case your party extends well into the evening after the sun goes down and the lawn games get put away. Printable games are also a perfect evening activity when camping since they are light weight and easy to transport. Consider printing on recycled paper. Additionally, if you are looking for classroom activities for a patriotic school party, these are both educational and fun.
All six of these printable patriotic games will keep your guests guessing and laughing plus you can personalize all of them.
