Childrens Football Parties:
Whether you're hosting the party in your own hame/garden, or visiting a local 5-a-side venue, decorating a room for a childrens football party needn't be difficult or expensive.
You can either choose the colours of your child's favourite team, and decorate the room with flags and banners to reflect this colour theme.
There are flags, bunting, coloured tablecloths, plates, napkins, balloons etc all on our main decorations pages.
Alternatively, you can go for a more "generic" football theme, and find some flags, bunting, banners, balloons etc with footballs on
(for examples, see right).
Whichever way you decide to go, you can get the children involved in the decorating process - either during the days leading up to the party, or for a more "sedate"
activity during the party itself (or in the event of some unexpected wet weather). Depending on the age of the children, you could involve them in:
- Making paper chains in the colours of their favourite teams
- Colouring in pictures of their favourite teams' kits
This link takes you to worksheets that have blank kits to colour in plus colouring instructions for every team in the 2014 World Cup,but you can adapt them for use with other teams, or have a competition to see who can design the best new football kit!
- Colouring in flags of their favourite footballing nations
This link takes you to lots of World Cup-related colouring worksheets.
Decorating the table where they sit to eat can be done quite simply and inexpensively.
To start with, either buy a
football party tablecover
or buy a green plastic table cover
and use white masking tape to mark out a football pitch.
Add a few football party plates
and football design napkins
and away you go!
