Tailgating is a fun way to interact, relax and enjoy some delicious food before a big game. But have you ever thought about the kids? How will you keep them occupied, especially if you plan to tailgate an entire afternoon before the game.
Why not take along some fun games everyone, not just kids, will enjoy! We always have decks of cards handy for some fun, but why not think a little bigger and make your area the place to be! You can make and take some of these along with you, or have them ready for your next backyard gathering!
