a fun game that can be played throughout the duration of your
party. Cut out a bunch of football images (or players on the
Detroit Lions teams - images found online.) Youll need
multiple copies of each image so that multiple party guests
can find them. On the backs of each of the images, write a
number between 1 and 3. These images will then be hid all
throughout your party space. Be sure to hide the images with
a 1 on the back in easier places and the ones with a 3
in the most difficult to find places. Explain to your guests
that theyll need to find the images (either footballs
or the players) before the party is over. Explain that the
winner will be determined not by who found the most, but rather
who has the most number of points (the numbers on the backs
of the images represent the points earned for finding that
Lions game posters make for great decorations AND they can
even double as prizes for any games that you have planned
for your party. Hang the posters in very visible spots throughout
your party area. Each time someone wins one of your games,
allow them to choose from one of the posters on the wall that
hasnt already been chosen by a previous winner. Typically,
you need to throw away the decorations at the end of a party
this time! Your guests will be able to happily take them home
with them! See below for a resource for getting your hands
on some Detroit Lions posters.
a few rounds of football themed Bingo. This is a great activity
to play while watching the game during commercial time or
every time someone scores during the game. You can either
create your own boards or download some HERE.
construction paper (either black or the colors of the Detroit
Lions) cut out paper lion paw prints
and lots of them.
These are great for taping to the floor on the way to the
front door of your party as well as on the walls of your party
space! Check out images online of lion paw prints for reference.
up some brown shaggy fur at your local fabric store (a yard
should do the trick.) Cut out a ring of it to attach to a
standard football helmet in the shape/design of a lions
mane. This looks great as part of your centerpiece!
great kids game (and for more energetic adults) is to have
each player lay on the ground wearing full football pads (all
of them.) When you say GO, the party guest wearing the full
pads must stand up and lay back down as many times as they
can in one minute. This is tough to do WITHOUT the pads, with
the pads its even more crazy!
