Super Bowl Snacks and Crafts

Football season will be coming to an end a few days from now and the Super Bowl game will determine the champion of the National Football League (NFL).  Bill and I grew up watching football every Sunday, the New England Patriots for Bill and the Denver Broncos for me.   And as for our kids growing up in Washington state, the Seattle Seahawks.  Here I have put together a few snacks and crafts for Super Bowl Sunday:  a big bowl of popcorn, pizza, treats and your favorite drinks all on a  football field table cover.

The football field table cover project came from Karin Lidbeck-Brent’s Fall tailgate party ideas.  This was fairly easy to make using brown Kraft paper, masking tape to make straight lines and a black Sharpie pen to write the numbers.

Super Bowl Pizzapizza


I had my little helper Caleb put together the pizza, all I did was rolled the pizza dough out and put it in the oven.  We made 4 pizzas from the two bags of Trader Joe’s pizza dough.


Trader Joe’s Pizza Dough (1 bag makes 2, 12inch pizzas)
1/4 – 1/2 Cup Pizza Sauce
8 – 10 oz Mozzarella Cheese
Pepperoni slices

  1. Place a pizza stone on a rack in the lower third of your oven.  Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Line the counter top with parchment paper and sprinkle with flour.  Take the pizza dough out of the bag and divide it in half.  Roll them into balls and let them rest on the counter for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Roll out the pizza dough with the rolling pin to about 12 inches in diameter.
  4. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on the pizza dough (almost to the edge). Sprinkle on mozzarella cheese and top it with pepperoni slices.
  5. Lift the parchment paper with the pizza and set it on top of the pizza stone in the oven (a cookie sheet will work just fine).  Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes.



Super Bowl & legos

 After I finished putting together the football field table cover and started to gather the food for the table, my 8 year old son Caleb came to me and said he wanted to help.  I said, “That will be great!”  Right away he went to work without ever asking what he could help “me” with.  Our dining table is about nine feet long, lots of room for us to share. While I was working on one end, my son was at  the other end of the table quietly working on his Lego project.  As you can see, we had two visions of what to do with the paper football field, you either eat on it or play a game of Lego football.  He had a great setup with grand stands, fans, mascots, announcers, and a field with goal posts and players.  I thought he was pretty clever.

enjoy the Super Bowl!

    Kay, you spent some TIME on this, it’s a wonderful presentation. As always. Caleb (the self proclaimed ‘city boy’) is too adorable. Love his touches.

      Thanks Sherry. This was a fun post to put together with Caleb (the “city boy” of our little town of Fall City)
