While I admittedly don’t know much about football, I do know one thing…I love any excuse to sit in front of the TV and snack. I mean, am I right? Give me some pretzel crisps and some tortilla chips and I am one happy (relaxed) mom. Although I do love any reason to sit and snack, I also live for a good get-together. You know, the kind where all the neighbors and their kids come over, everyone brings a dish – potluck-style – and the kids and adults are just having fun: eating, chatting, and watching the game.
Because I Said So Baby readers know that when it comes to parties, it’s all about the theme for me, which means that I always come up with an easy, inexpensive, (yet Pinterest-worthy) craft. With The Big Game just around the corner, I wanted to create a simple, yet fun craft that would also be functional for the party itself. Of course, I thought if I could combine food and a craft that would be ultimate bliss, and so, these adorable Easy DIY Gameday Snack Cups were born.
So, you know when you’re at a party and you keep putting your cup or plate down, only to forget which one was yours? Yeah, we’ve all been there. And if you have kids, you’ve been there AND back. That’s why these little snack cups are perfect for a casual gathering.
- If you know who’s coming in advance, label the cups ahead of time.
- Alternately, let guests and older kids label their cups once they arrive as a fun “welcome-to-the-party-craft”.
- For littler ones who can’t read yet, in addition to their name, use a little color-coded sticker so you can say “Harper, you have the cup with the purple sticker.”
Easy DIY Gameday Snack Cups
- Clear plastic cups
- Brown cardstock
- Hole punch
- Twine or string
- White marker (I used an oil-based Sharpie paint pen)
1. Using a pencil, outline the shape of a football on the cardstock (I did this by hand).
2. Decorate the football with the guest’s name and any laces or markings as shown below.
3. Cut out the football and punch a hole in the top middle.
4. Punch a hole at the top of the plastic cup (If your cup has a lip you may have to force the hole punch over it).
5. Tie the football nametag to the cup using twine or string. Fill with crunchy, delicious snacks such as Snack Factory® Pretzel Crips® or Late July® Tortilla Chips.
-You can find Snack Factory® Pretzel Crips® in the deli section of your grocery store.
–Late July® Tortilla Chips can be found in the natural section of the chip/snack aisle of the grocery store.
