Take the kids to the park and have a kickabout, divide into teams (girls v boys, adults v kids – anything goes!) and just have a really good time.

Football is a sport that has been around for centuries, and it is one of the most popular in the world. It can be played by all members of the family, and it can be played anywhere.It’s great for people of all ages because it provides a chance to get some exercise, have fun with friends and family, and even see some amazing skills.
If you don’t really like the playing side, have you thought about a family day out to an actual football match?
It’s a great day out for families because there are so many different things to do at the match – from eating pies to watching your favourite player take on their opponents. You can spot celebrities (depending on your choice of club!) and enjoy people watching.
A great way to get the kids excited for the football match is to keep them up to date with what’s going on in the world of football – so you need to make sure you check out the latest sports news so that they are completely engaged with the game.
Competitive sports are a great way to teach children about the value of teamwork, self-discipline and good sportsmanship. Sports can also teach children about the importance of physical activity and healthy living.
In addition to these benefits, competitive sports are also a great way for kids to learn how to deal with disappointment when they don’t win. Who is your team? Often, kids will support one of their family members favourite team. Our team is Sunderland – the atmosphere at the Stadium of Light is absolutely electric every time – they play a particular song as the plays come out of the tunnel, and it sends shivers down my spine each time I visit. However, Sunderland have seen quite a few losses in recent years and have gone from the heady heights of the Premier League down to the not so exciting League One. My daughter once fell asleep, aged 4, watching Sunderland play Manchester United – now, 16 years later she would just love that opportunity, but I think it’s a while away yet!
Let them buy a program – you might even be able to get it signed if you go to a smaller club! Make a whole day out too – depending on the ages of your kids you could go to a pub beforehand but be aware they can get rowdy and crowded! Maybe a picnic in the park first and a kickabout, then on to the match!
I hope your team wins!
