What You Need:

  • White Poster board
  • Brown card stock – we had gold poster board laying around, so we used that
  • Markers
  • Poster tacks or doubled sided tape (something that will stick to the walls)
  • Blindfold – or something to cover your eyes

What You Do:

  • Make footballs out of the brown card stock – the easiest way for me what to fold the paper in half and cut from corner to corner making a half of an oval…when you open it, it was a perfect football
  • Use Markers to decorate the footballs and add the names of the players
  • Create your goal post by cutting stripes of white poster board
  • Attach it to the wall using poster tack or double-sided tape
  • Put double-sided tape or tack on the back of each football once it is decorated

To Play:

  • Line Up your Players
  • Blindfold them one at a time and spin them three times
  • Let them go and see if they can SCORE
  • When everyone has a turn, write down the points and repeat as many times as you would like…Maybe 1st one to 21 win…whatever you think your group would like…make the rules together!
  • Point suggestions can be 3 – for a field goal ๐Ÿ™‚
