What about a "Rumble in the Jungle" theme. You could make a boxing ring and have a person dressed up as a panther and one as a wildcat. If there is enough room on the float and depending on how many people you have, you could have the different crowds cheering on each team.

For Panthers vs. Wildcats---GO PANTHERS, BEAT THE "MILD" CATS--have a panther ready to pounce on a kitty cat

Ad

Bulldogs vs. Bears---IT'S A DOG'S DAY, a bulldog holding (or chewing on) a teddy bear. GO BULLDOGS, BEAT THE "TEDDY" BEARS

Knights--I don't understand the tank idea. Who are you playing against? Have a fake fire, a knight with a sword, and a small image of the opponet on the end of the sword. Have the sword over the fire. KNIGHTS SLAY THE_______. Or, KNIGHTS EAT _____ FOR A (CAMPFIRE) SNACK.

Panthers vs. Knights---Have a panther sitting on top of a knight. TONIGHT IS THE PANTHER'S KNIGHT

Have fun all of you!

For the hornets it could be: Sting The (other teams name) and then for your float you could have the mascot of the other team running away from a hornet thats ready to sting.

How about sticks of dynamite with the cardinal strapped to them or to the top of them and the panther lighting the fuse

or cardinal "parts" scatter around and the remnants of the blow up dynamyte (fire, smoke, KABOOM sign, team members or cheerleaders in tattered uniforms with grimy faces)

send a picture!

it is so easy to come up with ideas and not so easy to put them to practical use. float making is hard work. i've helped to a few for our town parades and they aren't as easy as people think.

that said.....you've seen the old tom and jerry cartoons where tom is trying to blow up jerry.....why not expand on that theme and tom(panthers) can blow up jerry (cardinal) and you could have a lot of red stuff flying around like he'd blown off the feathers.

or... a panther with a cardinal in its mouth ready to drop it in a bucket of dynomite.
good luck

Since you are the Panthers put jungle greenery around the sides of the float.Up the back, have vines on thin poles and jungle floral beauty mixed with trees that are small. Fake dynamite will be placed at a fair distance from each other. Since your intention is to win the game, place strong wire into the end of the dynamite and push right through to the base so it is blasting about one to one and one and one half feet in the air. It will need sparkles on it to show the cardinals blasting up in the air! A beautiful win!

How about a birdhouse made of stacked sticks of dynamite. Lay the dynamite like "logs". The chimney would have a lit fuse coming out of it.

Why don't you take an idea from Charles Dickens: the ghosts of future drunk driving victims? The future doctor who never got to save a life, etc. This close to Halloween you can probably find lots of ghost makeup and ideas online for making people look like ghosts. I know this isn't a very good idea but it's all I could think of. All good wishes for your homecoming. Hoping for the day when there won't be any more drunks.

I am planning the senior homecoming float. The theme is American Dance. I desperately need help thinking of a way to decorate our float using some really creative ideas.

I was thinking of using hip hop for the theme, because I figured it was the most popular American dance. However, I also thought of a mix; like hip hop, country, that kind of stuff. So if any one has Ideas that would be awesome. So just like ideas for what the float would look like and what we can do as like a skit. Thanks so much.

Our school does homecoming floats every year that "put down" the other team such as "grill the gators". We are the wildcats and this year we are playing the cowboys. If you could give me any ideas that would be great. Our school colors are navy blue and white and the other team's colors are blue and silver. any ideas and/or slogans.

How about "claw the cowboys" or "pounce the cowboys"? Those are the first two things that popped in my head. Then of course you have the wildcat attacking the cowboy. he has a ripped (clawed) shirt, hat torn up, etc.
Hope this helps

Do Daniel in the Lions Den - I'm not sure what to actually put on the float - maybe put a whole bunch of fire and instead of the Lions use the other teams mascot as the Lions and put Daniel as the "winning" Lion! - Just a thought! Have fun!

We are actually playing the tigers for our homecoming this year. We are making "tiger soup" with a big menu and giant soup can decorated like campbells soup. Our girls (the 8 and under cheer squad) are rolling their hair to look like Shirley Temple, and we are playing "Animal crackers in my soup" in the background. You could use this idea, and make "wildcat soup". Good Luck!!!
