{TUTORIAL} Paper Football

So throwing a football party implies certain activities (like watching the BIG GAME on TV or playing a little Two Hand Touch), but what do you do when there isn’t a big game on, somebody’s mom won’t let them get dirty or its monsoon season? PAPER FOOTBALL…the next best thing to real football if you’re on bed rest!!! All joking aside, a paper football tournament can be a great deal of fun for football fans when playing an outside game isn’t really an option.  Paper football basically consists of a table and strip of paper. I have even provided a FREE FOOTBALL PRINTABLE for you:) Two players sit on opposite sides of the table.  The player with the ball slides the ball toward the defensive player (that’s the player without the ball in case my mom is reading).  The object is to get the ball to hang over the opposite edge of the table without falling off.  If it falls off or doesn’t reach over the edge, the ball changes hands and the other player gets a turn.  If the ball does hang over without falling off, its a TOUCHDOWN and you get 6 points.  The defensive player then holds their hands with index fingers up and thumbs touching (making a half square) about chest height and the player with the ball gets to “kick”.  To kick you place...

Whether you are going tailgating, hosting a big game or throwing a birthday party for your little (or big) football fan, NFL GAME DAY has got you covered.  This party plan is even available in all 32 teams.  We have a bit of a turf war in my house with three Steelers fans and one Colts fans.  (That’s right I claim fan status for my baby!!  My girls will definitely be representing their Steelers this season since we now live in the heart of Bengals country…I’m looking forward to beating some Cincinnati behind this year!!! Here are some pictures of the new party line… For the dessert table, I set up a mini field complete with goal post  and player cupcakes.  The field serves both as décor and as a cupcake platter for a unique touch.  The cupcakes are scattered around the field with a mixture of player toppers and team toppers.    This is my favorite aspect of this party.  When I started conceiving this party, I decided early on that I wanted a field and everything grew out from there.
