Michigan Wolverines Party Ideas

Here’s a fun game that can be played throughout the duration of your party. Cut out a bunch of football images (or players on the Michigan Wolverines teams - images found online.) You’ll 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 they’ll 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 image.)

Take photos of each guest during the party, preferably alone. As thank you cards, create football trading cards using the photos that you took of each guest. It’s an inexpensive, yet impressive parting gift and thank you card for attending the party!

Check for upcoming sales at your local fabric store (Joann’s is great for having 40% off coupons that come in the mail to those on their mailing list.) A variety of fabrics in the Michigan Wolverines colors can be purchased. Sometimes you can even get lucky to find images/prints that will also work within the theme. The fabric can be used to swag on windows and over tables as part of a tablecloth display. Cutting the fabric into small squares will also provide for amazing napkins!

Play 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.

If you are planning on several different games (or a single games where the players are earning points) don’t call them ‘points.’ Instead, refer to them earning ‘yards’ just like in a football game. The winners will be those that get 50 yards from the 50 yard line to make a touchdown!

Here’s a fun game for those more adventurous guests. Ahead of time boil lots of boiled eggs (two for each guest) and provide one NON-hardboiled egg for each guest. Pair up your guests and explain that they will each get three eggs cracked on their heads…TWO of them with a football helmet. They get to choose which egg will be cracked over their head (by the other partner in the pair) without the helmet. The trick, of course, being to make sure that you are wearing the football helmet with the egg gets cracked (which will end up getting their partner messy instead of them!)

When 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. It’s 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.)
