Hosting a flag football party is a great excuse to have friends over for an afternoon of fun. I put a festive twist on our recent game by designing bright sparkly flags for the ladies and thick leather straps for the guys. Belt trim can be purchased cheaply at your local fabric store, and with the addition of sewn on velcro strips, you can design any type of flag you’d like. Be sure to provide lots of water and treats to refill empty stomachs after the game.
While we belt up for more weekend play, here are a few favorite links from this week:
