Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend! And even if you aren’t into the big game, it’s a great excuse to get together with friends and indulge in all the food you wouldn’t normally allow yourself to eat! What better way to celebrate than with a party… kids included, of course! Below, you’ll find our tips and tricks for a kid friendly Super Bowl Party!
Get Festive Party Supplies
Make it simple and inexpensive! It’s one of those festivities where no one is going to be looking to see whether you’re using your fine china! And who wants to do dishes afterward? Definitely not me! Get some fun football paper plates, a football field table cloth and fun serving platters! These little mylar football balloons will make things look festive and I love this goal post centerpiece!

Canned or rotisserie chicken (4 cans)

SKIP THE COOKING AND ORDER TAKE OUT
On the other hand, not in the mood to cook a big spread? Order out! There are plenty of awesome places to get food from! Claudie’s is a perfect option with an array of chicken to choose from… from traditional to buffalo wings, to chicken tenders, to a bucket of good ole fried chicken, this will be a crowd pleaser! Here are some other great options: Taliericio’s (I recommend the fried raviolis and their specialty subs), Luigi’s (I recommend their grandma pie and their buffalo shrimp appetizer), Surf Taco (enjoy a taco bar at home!), Local Smoke (recommend the bacon wrapped jalepeno poppers and all the pulled meat is delicious, and their sweet potato fries are a MUST!), Frutta Bowls (fruit bowls will win over even your pickiest eaters!).
FIND WAYS TO ENTERTAIN THE KIDS
This doesn’t actually need to be complicated… but it is super important! Try setting up a table with some super simple (and not messy) crafts! I love the DIY foam finger and mini megaphone ideas from Frog Prince Paperie!
Foam Finger Materials:
– Printable foam finger template available here!
– Foam sheets

Mini Megaphone Materials:
– Paper cups
– Fringed tissue paper

Depending on the kids’ ages, you can also set up fun games! For the little ones, I love setting up little tunnels and tents for the kids to crawl through, especially with the pit balls! For older kids, something like cornhole or Football Bingo is a great idea!
