How to Keep Kids Occupied While Still Celebrating the Season
Your kids are out of school for two weeks. They’re bored. What can you do? …
Who doesn’t love a good Super Bowl party? After all, what could be more fun than all of your friends crowded into one room, enjoying snacks and getting excited about the big game? To really get the most enjoyment out a Super Bowl party, some of us like to get really creative to entertain the crowd. First on the list is usually the game day spread and next, the decorations. Here are few simple things you can do to plan ahead for the ultimate Super Bowl Spread and decorations.
What Are You Going to Eat?
Providing food at a game day party is not just nice, it’s essential. If you haven’t decided what you are going to make for the big day, we have a few ideas:
Admit it. A Super Bowl party wouldn’t be a Super Bowl party without the queso dip. Luckily for you, Kraft has a great recipe that we’ve hooked you up with. Your welcome.
The Ultimate Spread
If you want more than just queso dip and salsa, make a spread and get creative with things like nachos, tacos and quesadillas. Get crazy and go all out with mini-burgers and some sophisticated toppings. There aren’t many people who are going to turn down tasty mini-cheeseburgers with bacon and tomato!
If you stick with simple recipes and make a lot of bit-sized, build-your-own options, you won’t have to worry about anyone going hungry or picky children.
Definitely don’t skimp on the desserts on game day. Whether you decide to go with store-bought options or make a few options at home, some top favourites are cookies, brownies and bite-sized cheesecakes.
You can always get creative and get a game day cake. Or, you could make cake pops during half time. If you aren’t that into the game, you could get the cake started and let it cool before half time. Once half time starts, your guests can come to the table, where you have a spread an array of different frostings and sprinkles so they can create their own. This is a great idea if you have children attending as well because it keeps them occupied.
One of the most fun things about game day is how festive it can be. For some, it is practically a holiday. Join in on the fun by decorating your home. You can hang banners or decorate your table as a football field. You can also use astro turf to create a decorated doormat. The sky is the limit. Also, don’t forget to wear your favourite jersey.
No matter what you decide to do for game day, keep it fun and simple. This is a time for you to relax and enjoy each other’s company, while possibly enjoying some competitive rivalry. Remember to just take it easy. You’ve already got everything else covered.
