Okay, so the truth is I’m not a huge football fan. I’m not sure I even know who is going to be playing in the Super Bowl. Gasp! Sorry, but after living outside the United States for nine years, I just sort of stopping paying attention. However, it can be so much fun to throw a Super Bowl party even if your favorite team isn’t playing. Honestly, it’s just another reason to hang with friends. Not that we actually need a reason… Keeping the kids busy while everyone is watching the big game can be a challenge, so I gathered up some fun and educational ideas for the kids. Plus, they are all low-prep, so you can focus on the actual party instead of the kids’ games.
