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 →

Ready, Set, Hike! Printable Football Games

Ready, Set, Hike! Printable Football GamesIf 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?
