I have found the most fabulous website for NFC and AFC Football Helmets!
They have listed on this site, every football helmet for the NFL AND the colors
each helmet is suppose to be! It's AWESOME!!
It's honestly the best that I've ever seen! I've been using this page for a few years now with
our Super Bowl Theme!!
For Monday, we had each child pick their favorite team! Then we had them color in the football helmets! They did a fantastic job listening as to where to put what color!! I made my sheet using Microsoft Works.
We made a list of who picked what team, and for the rest of the week, their specific craft was geared towards that particular team!! It requires a little work, but, it's not so bad, we have found what works for us to keep it as simple as possible!!
For Tuesday, we had the kiddos bingo dab the football and then we painted their handprints as if they were catching the football. The idea was on Pinterest, we just tweaked it a little for our classroom!
On Wednesday, we made the famous pennant. This was cut from card stock and painted by the kiddos. I printed up the words using some football fonts that I've collected through the years. We kept this one pretty simple!!
Thursday, was the class favorite!! We made giant number 1's. The back has a strip of poster board to the hand can slip inside. The kiddos really loved the 1's! Several students left school saying, "We're number one! We're number one!" Mommy's even reported on Friday, some of the kiddos woke up still saying it!! We did take each child's picture holding up their number one! They painted the number one hand, either purple for the Ravens or Gold for the 49'ers. Then we had the kiddos bingo dab their team using some football letters. In a "Team" font, I typed up I'm number one on God's Team! They painted these using the opposing colors to the Purple and Gold. This was such a huge hit, that we tried to make sure everyone got a number one, which meant carrying over our craft for Friday!!
On Friday, we caught the extra five kiddos up on their number ones. (It was suppose to be 8 kiddos but 3 didn't show up!) Then we chose to stamp a football, fingerpaint and color a bigger helmet picture, and Add a poem that Melissa and I wrote last year, just changing what needed to be changed for this year. The poem reads: The Super Bowl is the big game. To New Orleans they will fly on a plane. The (Baltimore Ravens or San Francisco 49'ers) is who will get it done. Way to go! Football is so much fun!!
All in all, it was a huge success!! For the next two weeks, we will be all about some Valentines!!
God Bless You All!
