14 Games to Play at Your Super Bowl Party

By  | Last Updated:  

How do you keep energetic kids happy when all the adults who want to really watch the Super Bowl are hushing them? My first answer: engage a responsible someone to help watch them! I know that isn’t always practical however and even if you do have a sitter, they still need activities to keep them busy while the game goes on…and on. Plan some Super Bowl fun geared toward the younger set; everyone will thank you! This round-up of activities should help inspire anticipation instead of groans when the Super Bowl is mentioned. Some of these game ideas are for adults; most activities are geared for the kids; they all look FUN!
