Yep! It’s that time of year again…where the pig-skins get thrown around. My spouse and I are actually not a “sports loving” couple. We hardly ever watch games just to watch games…instead, we like the social aspect of it all. 🙂

I tried to get simple decorations that would help add to our “Pep Rally”. I discovered that the school colors of the football team we were rooting for were green, white, and black. To go along with the color scheme – I purchased my green football, brown football platter, and green streamers, from Dollar Tree. Recreating my football cookies is easier than you think! Just buy oatmeal cream cookies and use icing to draw the strings on the cookies to make them look like footballs.
Get really decked out by wearing pops of your teams colors as eye shadow or cute studs for your ears. We even added simple ribbon to our hair to show our school spirit.
And dressing up the kids is a MUST!
We decorated a sign we could wave around at the game. You can get as creative as you want with it. I found the green poster board for $.50 at DollarTree.
I found these awesome washable tattoos and mini fingers at OrientalTrading.com. They come in all different colors and were only a few bucks.
Now that we were all ready to show our school spirit we headed to the Football game. It was Homecoming so it was packed. Seeing the Homecoming King and Queen ride down the track in a Mercedes-Benz made it felt like it was straight from a movie. Because seriously, whose school really rents a luxury car for Homecoming? Not mine!
My favorite part of the game was half time. I wanted to run down on the grass and start dancing with their dance team and cheerleaders.
The experience was wild, I haven’t been to a High School game in 6 years so going back as an adult and sitting in the adult section was actually a lot of fun. To make your experience even more – fun make sure you sit next to the very outspoken group of parents that yell at the ref the whole time and say things like, “TAKE HIS LEGS OUT!” and, “Did you see that? He scrambled like an EGG!” LOL! I didn’t realize I would get so into the game, but we were waving our mini-fingers around the whole time and jumping up with the crowd when we scored and I even started yelling, “GO TEAM!”
So this weekend grab your favorite, most fun group of friends, have an awesome Pep Rally, and go to your local High School’s football game. There are only a few more football games left, so I hope everyone gets to try this date out.
