No football game would be complete without a #1 foam finger. Make these easy diy foam fingers for kid sized hands. And as a bonus, they can decorate these themselves.

Download the #1 foam finger template by clicking on the download link below. Print onto a standard size 8-1/2″x11″ piece of paper and cut out the template. Using 2 pieces of 12×18″ craft foam (found at a local Michael’s Craft Store) cut out two of the #1 foam finger templates. Use a hot glue gun to glue the two pieces together around the edges, everywhere except the bottom of the hand. This is intended to fit a child’s hand.

Now you can pass the foam finger to the kids to decorate. You can use either permanant or washable markers. To make the white #1 design, use a white oil based Sharpie paint pen.

  2. Thanks for these great tips! My wife and I are having a huge get together for the final weekend of the NFL season, with all my friends and coworkers from DISH. We’ve been looking for just these kinds of ideas, and most of them we can definitely apply to our party, even though it will take place at our house and not the stadium. I especially love the DIY foam finger! We’re going to have tacos, a six-foot sub, giant nacho platter, and three pony kegs. Then with my DISH Hopper, I’ll hook up three TVs in our living room. The Hopper has three tuners, so that will allow us to watch three different games at the same time in full HD! These other tips will come in handy, too!
