I have two football mad little boys and also a football mad husband, so with the spirit of a family night in, I decided that I better join in the fun and get involved with the FIFA World Cup family fun. We have a family game night once a week and decided to use the #BigMatchPlanner as an opportunity do lots of FIFA World Cup Crafts and Activities with the boys.
Firstly we went shopping for Coca-Cola to make our obligatory Coke Floats (they are a family night staple). We went to Tesco to purchase Coca-Cola’s 1.5L 4 pack promotional product as part of our #CollectiveBias shop. They are great value at £4 for four 1.5 litre bottles. Mini was very excited as we don;t regularly shop at Tesco!
FIFA World Cup Crafts and Activities for Kids
The World Cup is a great way to introduce some learning in to children and my boys are geography obsessed, so we are taking this opportunity to discuss which continent the country is from, their flag and the language they speak.
We have some excellent sticker books with Flags on and use them a lot. We also have been having great fun with our Flags Game too.
We crafted and made medals, bookmarks and coloured in our own football kits (craft stuff came mainly from Yellow Moon and Viking Direct)
Looking for more inspiration for crafts, activities and learning involving the world cup, then take a look at my Pinterest board:

Mini turns eight on the 24th June and we are going to be having a football party and I have been looking at the #BigMatchPlanner and now have so many ideas of what to cook and games to play. It is a fab resource and perfect for anyone hosting a get together (no matter how small) over the World Cup. Not only does it suggest food options for the relevant counties, but also music, flags and games too.
Yeah, is World Cup day! Now it is a great time to teach children not only football and also flags. Lovely craft!
Such a great value for 4 bottles of coke! We already bought some and almost all gone!
Finally the World Cup is here – hurrah! Can’t believe its taken so long to arrive, some great crafting ideas here. My son would love those bookmarks too, I know he would. Thx.
Oh no it’s here! 😉 great ideas though. Especially teaching them about flags x
I love the bookmarks! It’s amazing how many activities we can link to the World Cup (and how much food too). We never usually shop in Tesco either but the offer was too good to pass up!!
I’d never thought of the geography side of the world cup. What a great idea, not sure it’s going to make me love football any time soon though 🙂
What a lovely post with some great ideas. xxxx
not much a fan of football but i do love that the educational matter of learning about other countries can be brought into it making it fun to x
What a great idea to use the World Cup as a springboard for learning. Thanks for the heads up about #BigMatchPlanner – I didn’t know about it.
The Geography side of the world cup is so easy to install without them actually realising they’re learning isn’t it
I love all the crafting you have got up to. It’s lovely having the World Cup as inspiration for so many activities. I hope Mini enjoys his birthday party!
Fab bookmarks! They look great and perfect for boys and girls who love reading and football!
Some good ideas thank you for sharing .x

Looks like you are all prepared for the world cup.Enjoy 🙂
We’re loving the world cup build up here – cant wait for football fever to kick in 😉

football fever is well and truly here in this house
I a m not into football but what a great way to get some geography into it!

We are all crazy about the world cup here too. Thanks for the cool ideas.
Great ativities for the kids to do for this World Cup. Thanks x
My two are too young for the whole football thing but I think they would love some of these crafts.
I can’t believe it is World Cup time already – I love that bookmark, great crafty ideas 🙂 x
We are not football fans but we are really big world cup fans! I love it as an opportunity to learn more about the different countries.

We are using the world cup as flag learning inspiration too! I cohost a link-up that this post would be perfect for, hope you’ll link-up! http://toddlefast.blogspot.com/2014/06/creative-kids-culture-blog-hop-17.html
Some great crafting ideas. Have a good party
Tom and Wilf watched their first football match together over the weekend and I could see by Tom’s face it was a special moment for him! I on the other hand creep upstairs to watch SOA 😉 x
I used to love learning about countries and flags when I was a child. Strange, but I did end up doing a geography degree so makes sense really.
It’s great that there can be educational aspects to sport as well, as just the sport and team aspects.
These footie parties are really getting me in the celebratory mood! Love the bookmark ideas too.
Il give these a go…..Until england get kicked out in a few days
