8 Nights of Hanukkah Gift Giving Guide

My children still tease me about some of our Chanukah traditions. I must admit, with eight days of Hanukkah gift giving and a limited budget, I often found myself pushing the boundaries of creativity. I often used the holiday to buy them “gifts” that satisfied “needs” rather than “wants” and always designated at least one day to reinforce the importance of Judaism and the Jewish traditions of performing mitzvot and giving tzedakah.

FYI >> We always switched up the order of the nights so the kids never knew which night would be the dreaded (often embarrassing) personal hygiene night

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?
