March Madness: Sports Crafts for Kids


Basketball Bite-Sized TreatsMarch is mad with basketball, and kids should get in on the fun. However, since children are so particular, we figured we’d gather more than just basketball crafts to make sure every kid is satisfied. Here are some great crafts from AllFreeKidsCrafts for the kids to do while you watch some quality March Madness.

Keep those active kiddos occupied with crafts for kids that double as games, and wow their eyes and their tummies with delicious, crafty, sports-themed treats.

Since professional sports teams like to take their sweet time playing, kids tend to get antsy come second period. Encourage them to sit still and keep on cheering by giving them a sports craft to make while your  favorite team racks up points.

As the clock nears zero, kids are sure to have some grumbly tummies. Keep them happy during the entirety of the game by placing sports-themed finger foods in reach. Fuller bellies means less whining and more of a possibility of hearing the announcer’s brilliant input. My pick for the perfect game-time snacks are the Basketball Bite-Sized Treats. These delicious sandwiches are not messy, they easily fit in three different, important food groups, and they’re cute as can be. Cheering on your team is much more pleasant when the peanut gallery’s bellies are satisfied.

Give them their own games to play with these awesome sports game crafts that they can make and then play. For a game that doesn’t require much space or money, encourage the mini sports stars to make Thumb War Wrestlers. Nothing is more fun than giving your thumb a personality and a will to win.

    Our kids are grown now but they always came to us with what sports they wanted to play. They played in all the school sports.

    I’m not the greatest cook, but it never ceases to amaze me how even simple recipes can be turned into something incredibly creative. For instance I never would have thought to put fruit leather on a cake! The soccer ball looks too cool though. With some food recipes, I’m disappointed that the picture of the final result isn’t like the object its designed to resemble. Maybe these are fairly simple, yet I’m still impressed. These are definitely fun recipes for a sports party or kids’ birthday.
