It’s winter school break in our part of the world and despite the cabin fever, we are stuck at home for the week. I thought a good way to end the kids’ vacation would be to let them have a few friends over on Saturday. Since there just happens to be some major international sporting events taking place, we decided on a sports-themed party.
The first staple of any good party—the food. I know we’ll need lots of it considering the pack of pre-teen and teen boys we expect as guests. In addition to the typical junk food, I plan on preparing the Sporty Party Food, using pictures of the boys’ friends and the US flags. I will probably make the sliders shown here, but these food picks work well for a variety of foods, especially desserts.
I’m putting the boys in charge of decorations, and they have the rest of the week to work on that part. I wouldn’t be surprised if I see lots of USA flags and pictures of skiers, skaters and snowboarders when I get home from work.
For favors, we’re going to make these Photo Party Favors. Luckily, my nephew is just moving into his first apartment and was going to get rid of his old sports trophies. So I grabbed those up and we are going to spray paint them red, white and blue and add photos of the boys’ friends.
Now I just have to come up with some ways for the kids to burn off some of the energy and excitement that’s sure to result from watching the televised sports. I guess I could always send them out in the snow to play…
Lastly, I have to find a way to work the new buzzword of the season into the party. If you have any suggestions for a creative way to incorporate TWIZZLE, please comment below!
