School started, the weather is getting cooler and the leaves have just started to change. To most this means signs of Fall, but to the high school population it can only mean one thing – HOMECOMING! Oh the memories. Although it has been several years (well…maybe a little longer than that even) since my last homecoming, I can still remember the butterflies of excitement as if it was yesterday. The date. The dress. The hair & of course the homecoming football game! While my days of dresses and butterflies may be gone and I still have another 7 or 8 years until I can relive the excitement through my little ones, that doesn’t mean I can’t start generating ideas now!
1. Excite-mint, Involve-mint & Commit-mint
This idea came from a young cheerleader who put these together for her middle school football team! So cute & I love the message she is sending about rewarding involvement and commitment (I mean involveMINT & commitMINT).
I simply cannot wait another 7 or 8 years to use this idea, so I instantaneously began brainstorming of other applications of the same idea:
- Congratulations on your AchieveMINT
- 1st Job – Welcome to the world of EmployMINT
- Social Studies unit on GovernMINT
- Sorry for our ArguMINT
- Kick butt in your TreatMINT
- A thank you to the team EquipMINT Manager
- Get ready for the big AnnouceMINT
2. Football Cake
I am not exaggerating when I say this cake couldn’t be easier to make! Get the step by step instructions here.
It could be made to hype up the team, for your next football get together or for your little sport nuts next birthday party.
3. Chocolate Covered Popcorn – in team colors of course!
Another super simple, yet fun idea is chocolate covered popcorn in your team colors. Get the step by step instructions here. This is a go to recipe in our house, because everyone loves it and it can be done in different colors to suit almost any event.
