Are you ready for some football!? This was such a fun storytime to do right before the Superbowl! Makes for a great family program as well 🙂
OPENING SONG: Mister Sun
BOOK 1: Dino-Football by Lisa Wheeler
Kick the ball…
When we play soccer.
Hike the ball…
When we play football.
When we do ballet
Swing the bat…
When we play baseball.
*Ask the kids, they always come up with great ideas!
FLANNEL RHYME: Five Little Footballs
Five little footballs trying hard to score
1 makes a touchdown (remove one football)
Hear the crowd roar! (Cheer!)

CRAFT: Football Helmets
Since we had snacks and games I kept the craft pretty simple! I printed off football helmets for the kids to decorate using crayons and sports foam stickers.
Football Helmet: Any Coloring
We got this inflatable football player and the mini footballs from Oriental Trading. We’ve used it for numerous programs and the kids love it.
