Super Bowl Games and Activities for Kids

Idea #1: Super Bowl Commercial Bingo

Offer a small prize and bragging rights for the winner! This can be fun for the adults to join too. It’s the best way to keep everyone entertained, whether you’re into the game or just there for food. The first person to connect a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line is the big winner!

Idea #2: Football Word Search

If your kids are interested in learning more about American football, this is one way to learn about the game! Make it a competition and whoever finds all the words first wins a prize!

Idea #3: Crab Football

Instead of “crap soccer” you have to hold the cushy football with your neck, knees, or armpits and get into your opponents’ end zone by walking like a crab. If your ball gets knocked down, it’s anyone’s game. This may require you to be more active than you’d like, but the kids will love it (and will burn off a few chicken wings). Play kids versus adults, family versus family, or boys versus girls.
