Super Bowl LVI will be played at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday, February 13, 2022, with kickoff set for 3:30pm (Pacific time). Although it will be played locally, most Southern Californian football fans will be watching the big game from a TV.
If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party, here are a few fun and yummy ideas to help make sure that everyone has a great time!
Football Field Party Table
Any size of table will do; however, a rectangular table works best. To create, place green felt over the top of the table. Decorate the felt to look like a football field by using white duct tape and pre-cut number stickers.
Root for your favorite team with an easy DIY pennant banner. To make, use construction paper that matches the colors of your team, and cut in the shape of triangles. Turn the cut-out triangles upside down and with a hole puncher, create one hole at each of the two corners of the base of the triangle. Put string or twine through the holes of the triangles so that all triangles are hanging upside. Glue cut out letter or adhere sticker letters onto the triangles to spell out your team.

To minimize cooking and food prep, ask your guests to bring a dish for the Super Bowl party. Hold a taste-test and have everyone vote for their favorites.
Super Bowl Betting Chart
Here are some easy directions to follow to create a Super Bowl Betting Chart:
Get all of the necessary materials: poster board, marker, and a ruler.
Make a 10 by 10 grid on the poster board so that you will have 100 squares across the board. Be sure to leave room around the edges of the board to write numbers and words.
On the left side of the first column of boxes, write the numbers 0 through 9, starting with 0. Above the first row of boxes, write the numbers 0 through 9, starting with 0.
Write one Super Bowl team’s name across the top of the grid (above the numbers), and then write the other team's name along the left side of the grid (above the numbers).
Assign a dollar value to each of the squares. For example, each square could be worth $1, so the total value of all boxes would be $100 since there are 100 squares.
Participants can buy as many squares as they want by writing their names or initials into the squares they want to purchase – it’s best to try to use all of the squares.
A winner will be determined at the end of the 1st quarter, 2nd quarter, 3rd quarter, and Final Game score. Winners are determined by looking at the last number in each teams' score and then matching those numbers on the grid and seeing which square intersects those two numbers. For example, if Team 1 (representing the left column of numbers) scored 23, and Team 2 (representing the top row of numbers scored 14, the person who purchased the box that represents "3" from the left column of numbers and "4" from the top row of numbers, would be the winner.
Note: You can split up the four payouts so that each winner receives the same amount, or you can assign each quarter a specific payout amount with the sum of all four quarters totaling the total dollar amount of all boxes. For example, if each box was worth $1, so your total boxes totaled $100, you could make the payout of Q1 $10, the payout of Q2 $20, the payout of Q3 $30, and the payout of Q4 $40.
Rate the Super Bowl Commercials
Before the game, create a Super Bowl commercial scorecard by listing categories such as funniest, weirdest, dumbest, coolest, and least favorite. Leave blank spaces where players can write in the names of their choices next to each category. Print and give each guest a scorecard with a pen or pencil. When the game is over, add up all the answers and ratings from players’ sheets and announce the "winning" commercials. Another option is to have guests give each commercial a rating from one to five and leave some comments of their own that can be read aloud later.
