“There are four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer and Football.”

– Unknown

Every family has Thanksgiving favorites and traditions. Some of the more popular ones are turkey, stuffing, parades, and of course, football. I saw a sign in a store recently that said: “There are four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Football” and I know that in our house, this is definitely true.

A weekend doesn’t seem to go by without a game being broadcast on our family room television. Much like a holiday, football seems to bring people together. Family and friends of all ages, rooting for the same team gather at one another’s homes as a united front to cheer on their players.

Something possibly equally as important as wearing your teams jersey or your lucky socks, are the snacks and team decorations put out for everyone to enjoy. Here are a few craft ideas to keep the younger ones entertained and also add a festive touch to your gathering:

Of course, it isn’t truly football without the food, so here are some ideas for jazzing up that special football spread that are easy to create and offer a great way to involve the kids in the preparation:
