With this week being homecoming, it’s a perfect week to try out some ways to make your tailgate even more fun.
If you’re bringing a cooler, filling it with ice is just one option, but water balloons are a little more fun. You fill and freeze them the night before and then you’ve got some do-it-yourself ice packs that you can have fun with after the game. The melted balloons make no mess with the water staying inside the balloon and they can be a fun way to clean up!
If you think the players did something wrong, or the referees made a bad call, you can make the call yourself by throwing a flag. Get a pack of yellow napkins and you and all your friends can call all the penalties you want by throwing your penalty napkins.
If you’ve run across the problem where you don’t have a place to put your drink, this is the DIY tailgate hack you need. Step one: grab your drink coozie. Step two: attach a magnet to the back side of your coozie. That’s it – you can put your drink on the door of your car, or anything metal you may have out. If you’re in a hurry, you can use adhesive magnetic tape, but you can also hot glue on magnets.
A twin sized fitted sheet solves your tablecloth troubles and you get bonus points for fun Razorbacks ones! The fitted sheet is just big enough to stretch over the average rectangular table and you don’t have to worry about the corners flying up because the fitted sheet hugs the corners.
If you’re looking for a fun game to keep the kids busy while you’re watching the game, grab some glow sticks and water bottles. Break and put the glow sticks in the empty bottles, grab a ball, or even a water balloon, and you’re bowling! It’s a fun night time game. It’s fun for all ages, you can put your own spin on this one.
Finally, if you’re feeling really ambitious, you can make your own snack stadium.
