As football season is upon us once again, it’s time to dust off the team jerseys, wipe down the TV screen, and get ready to kick back with friends and family to watch your team score.
For many families, football season offers a time to pass on traditions to younger family members, indoctrinating them into the family’s team of choice. Make sure you take time for the newest fans with these simple tips.
1. Make room down front. Create a small space on the floor for kids to stretch out and get comfy while watching the game, such as a blanket with a couple of pillows plus a toy or two. Put out a tray of snacks to reduce back and forth trips to the kitchen (and blocking of the TV).
2. Introduce kids to team colors. For toddlers and little ones still learning colors, this provides a great teaching opportunity. Let them help put up streamers and decorations. Get them their own attire to wear on game days so they can feel like part of the team.
Get your kids off the sideline and into the game with these great game day recipes:
Because these wedges are oven friend, you don’t have to be quite so worried about how many your little one has.
Popcorn balls are kid-tested classic! Here’s a hint: once they’re cool enough to handle, your children getting their hands dirty and helping form them.
Your imagination (and the little one’s!) can go wild with this awesome finger food. Load your nachos up the way Bobby and Jamie do, or pick and choose the add-ons that will make every one happy. Nachos will always score big!

Susan Lott is a great party planner! She has tons of great ideas that she needs to share with the online world. I have been begging her to start a Facebook page or Etsy account. The graduation gift that she made me was hand drawn with my name and different definitions for each letter. She framed it and I cherish it.....I also would have paid about $50 for it in a store. Thanks for sharing her idea but this idea is nothing compared to some of her other quick and money saving tips! You should hire her for your creative team!
Love you Susu!
