Football Games and Activities

Football Coloring Pages

Here are some free football coloring pages the kids can color in at the party:

Football Toss

There are all sorts of classic ball games to play with a real football or Nerf. You can hold contests, such as who can toss and kick the farthest, who can throw the ball in the hoop, or hit a soda can from a distance, etc.

Bandana Football

This is like flag football with no tackling involved. You can hand out different colored bandanas to each team (and the kids get to take them home as favors). Each kid stuffs the bandana in the back of their pants so that it’s hanging out (looking sort of like a tail). Then instead of tackling a player, the kids just need to pull the bandana out. Same rules as football.

Don’t forget to pass out fun football clackers to get the kids roaring and cheering their friends on.

Football Wrap

Form teams of three or four and hand out a roll of football toilet paper to each team. Have the teams compete to see who can wrap up their teammate fastest and then who can roll up the paper again.

Football Pinata

You can have the kids try to “tackle” a Football Pinata while they’re blindfolded :-) It’s sure to be a great hit at your kid’s football party.
