When to Play the Football Game Scavenger Hunt

  • A football-themed birthday party
  • Any football-themed watch party
  • Watching football in person with kids

How to Play the Football Game Scavenger Hunt

Players can play individually or as teams. If you have young children playing, it’s helpful to pair them with older children or an adult.

The football game scavenger hunt game boards contain some items that require football knowledge. You can:

  • Pair more knowledgeable players with novices
  • Have someone explain each of the different types of plays listed on the game boards
  • Have someone call out different plays during the game so that players can listen for the plays listed on their game cards

You can require all items on the game board be found to win or you can play this football scavenger hunt game similar to playing bingo. This would require players to find all items in a row or column to win. You can also call the winner based on who finds the most items in a predetermined amount of time

You may want to establish a judge to determine if items found by players qualify as matching the items on the game boards. You can identify a single judge or have all players vote on contested items.

You can play for bragging rights or provide a prize for the winner. My family likes to play for bragging rights, so don’t underestimate the fun of just playing the football game scavenger hunt just for playing the game.

How do I print the pdf file?

The pdf usually opens right up when you click on the link in the VIP Resources Library. When that happens, simply right click on the pdf and either print or save the document to your device.

If the pdf does not pop up for you, you’ll most likely find it in your computer’s Downloads folder. You can also select “Downloads” in your browser menu to see a list of your downloads, then select “Show in folder” below the file name to see where it is located on your computer.

I’m worried about wasting printer ink – what can I do?

Most printers offer you the option to print in greyscale which is in black and white.

You can also look for the option to print in draft or economy mode. This usually means that the sheet is printed out with less ink. It still looks great and is a good way to print in color but use less ink.

How can I use the printable (what restrictions are there on use)?

You can print these pdf files as many times as you’d like for your personal or classroom use. Please do not share the file with family, friends or coworkers. Please do share the link to this post so they can access their own copy of the printable. All printables are copyrighted.
