Football Activity Wall

The boys have been wanting to do endless football crafts, so we decided to make a football-theme activity wall. This wall went together very quickly with the help of a few supplies from Joann Fabrics.

Whenever we go to a craft store and the paper is on sale, I let them pick out a few of their favorite pieces to add to our collection. Of course they pick out paper that resembles every sport they can find. So, we didn't have to look far to find paper that looked like a football in our stash.

I cut a football template out of scrap paper to use when cutting the football paper.

Using a white paint pen, I put football lines on each of the cut-outs. I added a number (1-15) on the footballs. This number will correspond to the activities we do each day.

In our paper stash we also found paper that resembled a football field, so we used that as the background. I cut out goal posts out of yellow cardstock.

We added the footballs around the paper. The football in the goal post will show the activity we do for the day. 

Here are the activities:
