Super Bowl Craft

Football Craft

Happy Super Bowl Day!

It feels like a holiday, doesn’t it?  I am wondering why we don’t get Super Bowl Monday off from work and school, wouldn’t that be great?!

If all your work is done, food prepped, house straightened, TV dusted, how about throwing all your nervous energy and excitement into a Super Bowl craft!

What you need…

  • A football
  • 2+ sheets of paper
  • Brown tempera paint
  • Paint brush
  • Yarn
  • White glue


  1. Paint one section of the football with brown paint
  2. Press football onto a piece of paper and roll a little to try and create a football shape (repeat on a second piece of paper to achieve more defined texture)
  3. Once dry, create stitch pattern with pieces of yarn and white glue

  1. Love this, Ann! You bring unique ideas!
    I guess superbowl ignites the same kind of passion that Cricket ignites here in India!

    I might watch a bit to know what this game feels like.
    We have soccer or the British football here, which is different from American football. And, I figure that American Soccer is not like rugby either! hmmm…interesting!

    • The names of the sports are all mixed up here! Am. football is closest to rugby and it’s hugely popular!

      Thanks! We made more prints using different balls with different textures this afternoon – fun!
