We are hosting, and the weather looks like it is going to be cold and probably rainy..so how do I keep nearly a dozen kids occupied? Movies only go so far....I need some ideas. Got any?

 When I was a kid at Superbowl parties, yummy snacks helped keep me occupied.

 How old are the kids? If they are young, try to find a pre-teen or early teen to supervise the kids so the adults can watch the game.

 Snacks. Movies. Kids games. If you can find an older kid to supervise, maybe some type of craft. Or they could build forts and have flashlights to tell stories under the forts.

Ages 3 to 8. I was planning on a craft. Last time they made DDs whole room into a fort, without her permission and she wasn't happy...lol.

some board games or Yatzee. Make easy finger foods like pinsheel sandwhiches and fruit kababs and veggies and dip.

 Oh yeah, you totally need a pre-teen or teen to take pitty on you and help you out!
