A Superbowl Snackadium for the Kids

 Besides just feeding the after school kids, I think it is very important to give them something to look forward to.  When I see an opportunity to celebrate something, I go for it and they always have a great time with it. This is what I made them for a small Superbowl party!  Click for a closer look.  The goal posts, which are not standing up straight, where made out of beef sticks.

 First I had to make the stadium.  Hey, give me a glue gun and stand back!

I filled the stadium sections with sliced ham and roast beef, different cheeses, olives pickles and jalapenos, chips, nuts and pretzels.I made potato rolls so the kids could assemble sandwiches and I put extra bowls of snacks on the side.  I rarely do this but as an added treat, I bought a bunch of sodas which of course they loved.  Ha!  I sent the finished pic to one of my friends and he said he hoped his seat is in the cheetos section.  My DIL said she wanted to be tackled face down on the field.

 The pics are awful because I had to do some of the assembly in the car.

Guacamole served as the playing field.  Piped cream cheese made up the yard lines.  When we took it to the center, we filled the side containers with queso cheese and salsa.
 And interestingly, with all the baking I do for these kids, their favorite treats are these peanut butter and butter cream ritz cracker cookies.

I made about 150 of them and they were gone fast.  The kids had a blast.
