How is your bracket looking? If you know what I am talking about I bet you have had the games on the TV in your house just like us. Well, on those days the kids get real upset about all the TV watching that has nothing to do with Paw Patrol! Lucky for them, they have a daddy that loves to head outside with them and shoot some hoops.
Teagan catching air has to be the cutest thing ever! We have really lucked out with some great weekend weather recently which has been great for bike riding, basketball and running around in the sun. March basketball is full force on the TV and in our driveway. It is so much fun playing with the kids and seeing them get into the basketball madness with their dad. Even though they are not real excited about watching it on TV they are really excited to be out playing. I love that!
Once we finish our time outside and get settled in for some basketball on TV we are ready for some ache and pain relief from Advil. The kids, however, are not ready to rest and certainly do not want to watch the games on TV. I had to think of something to keep the kids entertained while we got in on the basketball madness so I created a fun and easy DIY Basketball Memory Game.
Basketball Memory Game
Different colors of construction paper
1. Print out basketballs on plain printer paper and cut them into circles.
2. Glue 2 basketballs on each color of construction paper.
3. Cut around the basketballs making sure NONE of the colored construction paper shows.
4. When drying, place basketball cut outs in a heavy book. This keeps them from curling up when the glue is drying.
5. Once dry, simply place them on a hard surface and begin playing the traditional memory game we all love.
The kids loved these little basketballs and when we taught them the rules of the game they were even more excited. It was a great way to interact with the kids while enjoying some of the basketball games as well. Memory games are a great way to get those brains working and can be played with all ages of kids which is really great for Jude and Teagan.
Teagan would get so excited when she would match colors. This was a perfect game for the kids to play together too. This simple DIY game will give them hours of fun and I love that it is a theme with all of the month's basketball madness going on too.
So colorful too! I love how this turned out and I have plans to make more of these. We are ready for all of the sporting events!
Once we played some Basketball Memory Game with the kids, they were ready for round two outside on the driveway! Pass me the Advil please.
Walmart is a great place to pick up any items needed for this sporting season. Make sure you pick up your Advil for all of those rough driveway pick up games with the kids! They are stronger than they look! Don't forget to use this coupon on your next purchase too!
How are you celebrating all this basketball madness this month?
