For our son's 5th birthday party we asked two high school football players to come to the party dressed in their uniforms including their shoulder pads, knee pads, and other protective gear. They ran the children through some drills and then demonstrated some maneuvers (including defensive blocking). It was a big hit.
The teens wanted to decline any payment, but we insisted on paying them for their time and also giving them some party pizza and cake. I don't remember what we paid them, but it was about $25 each for a couple of hours.
This is such a wonderful idea, makes me wish I had a young enough boy to have this party.
What a neat idea. I have never heard of that being done before. My last two children are boys and are toddlers now but I will write this idea down for a future birthday idea when they get a little older. Thanks for sharing.
This is a wonderful idea for boys.. I liked it so much that I wrote it down for later then realised that my "daughter" might not be into football..LOL..
Any ideas for girls??? Thanks.
Editor's Note: You could see if you could get some cheerleaders, girls basketball players, some drill team members.
