Host a Superbowl Party for Kids

Our guest blogger today is YSS member Ann Hardginski, Youth Services Librarian at the Kimberly-Little Chute Library.
Looking for ways to celebrate the Super Bowl in the library? Try a Super Bowl Sundae Spectacular! Our library has teamed up with the local Parks & Recreation Department to host an event on Jan. 30 that is sure to draw in those elusive boys.
Football fans ages four and up are invited to wear their favorite team jersey (regardless if their team is in the Super Bowl or not). We will be sharing the fun new football book The Day Roy Riegels Ran the Wrong Way by Dan Gutman. After the story, kids are invited to participate at different stations set up by the Parks & Rec staff: pennant making, Target Toss (throwing a football through a hula hoop), and an obstacle course. 
Some of the high school football players have volunteered to lead the group in some football drills as well. When the stations are completed, kids will then have a chance to create their own Super Bowl Sundaes. The big pails of ice cream work well with sauces and sprinkles on the side, or contact your local Culver’s to see if they will sponsor—they even supply free custard!
Football, books, and ice cream—it just doesn’t get much better than that!
