Each year for the Superbowl, we throw a party for the residents. It’s a great time to socialize and come together to cheer for an exciting game.
We keep it pretty simple as there are 2 other parties (Mardi Gras/Valentine’s) that we throw each year. Throwing multiple parties in February means the budget gets a little tight, I’m sure you can relate! Soooo…. we do a Potluck Super Bowl Party!
The residents and staff (whatever nurses, etc are scheduled to work) will bring different chips/dip or sandwiches, brownies, etc. This is a great way to save some budget money without really compromising the experience.
I also don’t do a lot of decor, just some green or football themed plastic table cloths on the potluck tables.
Something fun we have started, is Super Bowl Commercial Bingo! The residents that come more so for the socializing than the football enjoy having an activity and the football fans enjoy watching the game on multiple screens. (Free Download Below)
It’s easy to play, just mark off the common themes or types of commercials you see as the game goes on.
We give out small candy prizes or “Golden Footballs” (spray painted from the dollar store) to the bingo winners
