Food & Drinks

Next, you’ll need to think about the kinds of food and drink you’d like to serve at the party. Kids can be picky, so you’ll want to choose a simple and easy meal such as pizza, mac & cheese, burgers, or chicken strips! In terms of refreshments, providing a variety of pop and juice options is sure to please everyone in the room.

Party Games

If your party is taking place at home, you’ll need games to keep the kids busy during their inevitable sugar rush. There are endless games that involve soccer balls including regular soccer, dribbling drills, and relay races. You can even take classic games and put a soccer spin on them. Try adding a soccer ball to the egg and spoon race, hide and seek, capture the flag, or tag!
