a fun game that can be played throughout the duration of your
party. Cut out a bunch of football images (or players on the
Florida Gators 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
your local large toy store and check out their summer items.
This is a great place to pick up some inflatable alligators
(normally used for pools.) These can be great to use as part
of your centerpieces or as large decorations for your party
space. For smaller kids on warmer days, you can create a balance
beam to walk across over a kiddie pool. Fill the pool with
water and place a few inflatable alligators in the water.
The goal is to walk across a board set across the top of the
pool without falling off. For added difficulty, the other
kids can use squirt guns to try and knock them off!
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.
online beading stores you can order alligator teeth. These

An alligator gumbo is a safe dish for everyone to try
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!
purchasing team print napkins and plates, pick up an extra
package of each and use them for decoration! They can be some
of the least expensive and festive decorations you can use
for your party. Napkins that are unfolded can be hung up,
place inside clear bowls for centerpieces and taped up just
about anywhere. The plates can be hung from the ceiling and
the walls. Its a simple idea, but a great way to add
volume to your decorating without breaking the budget (see
below for team print napkins and plate options.)
