So you’re having a Super Bowl party? Or maybe you’re attending one. Want some ideas to keep the children happy, busy and eating while you have fun too? It’s possible for adults to include children in their party if it’s not going to be too rowdy. Let your kids start to learn about one of the biggest sporting events in the United States.
If there are very young children or infants you probably want to keep the children in the same room as the adults. This is especially true if there are older children and younger children, unless there is someone old enough and responsible enough to be a paid babysitter in that room.
If the children are about the same age and able to get along, you can have them in a room that is next to your party room. The adults take turns keeping an eye on them.
Be sure the room is child proofed. If possible a play room is best. If not, make it as wide open as possible.
This year’s Inauguration will be held this Tuesday, January 20th. There are many events that can be viewed on television and on the web. There are activities that you can do with your children either before or during the Inauguration. This day is history in the making. I hope that you will educate your child about the meaning of this day and do something together.
