In a small microwave safe bowl, melt 1 tablespoon shortening for 40 seconds, or until melted. Add the green chocolate melts, and stir until melted.

Dip (6) of the graham cracker squares into the melted green chocolate, covering each cracker evenly.   Gently lay on the baking sheet to “set” for 15 minutes.

tips to Involve Kids in My Football Party 

Kids are naturally enthusiastic about everything, so they are the best football party guests, ready to cheer on the home team

There are so many fun ways to include kids in both the party prep, and the viewing party itself! If you need more kids football party ideas, we have plenty.

My daughter always loves to help set up for our football games. She loves throwing a football party by arranging the tables of food, and dishes in her own special way, and then showing our guests her work! 

Before your football party, watch some clips from an old game and teach your little one about football (depending on age, of course).

Set up a football cookie decorating table! Ahead of the game day party, bake football-shaped sugar cookies, and then set out chocolate frosting, white cookie decorating frosting, sprinkles, and little candies, so that the kids can decorate masterpieces as they watch the game. We also make other ball shaped food as well, it is always a win!

A football crafting table is sure to be another hit! Gather all of the crafting supplies you have around the house, and set them out on a table for kids to make paper footballs, helmets, and signs!

Indulge in a more fun football game watch!
