Touchdown!!! Let's go Team Campers! We are going to make an American football field game!  

Project Difficulty: Intermediate


  • Construction Paper (yellow, green)
  • White Paper from Paint Set
  • Crayons
  • Scissors
  • Erasable Colored Pencils
  • Yellow Model Magic 
  • Washable Liquid Glue
  • Washable Glue Stick
  • Creativity Canvas

Additional Materials: 

  • Paper of Plastic Straw 


    1. Glue a piece of green construction paper to the creative canvas.  
    2. Use the white crayon to write 50 for the 50 yard line and add dashes and dots for the other yard lines. 
    3. Cut the straw in half. 
    4. Draw a goal post around the straw. The field goal needs to be wider than the straw. 
    5. Cut out the goal post. Trace this one to create a second. Cut out the second goal post. 
    6. Trim each half of the straw so the straw does not stick out the top of the goal post. 
    7. Cut the small piece from each half in half. 
    8. Take two nickel-sized pieces of Model Magic and roll each into a ball. 
    9. Push each long straw into the Model Magic. Pull the straws out, put a dot of glue in the indention in the Model Magic and replace the straw.  
    10. Glue the small pieces of straw to the arms of each goal post. 
    11. While the glue is drying we are going to make a football. Take a piece of white paper and fold it hot dog style (long ways) and open up the fold. Fold each long edge of the paper to the center fold and crease. Keep folded and fold in half on the original fold.  
    12. Take one corner of the paper and fold it to the edge. It will look like a triangle. 
    13. There will be a small edge left. Fold that edge into the triangle to secure. 
    14. Use the brown crayon to color each side of the football. 
    15. Draw thread lines on the football with a black crayon or black colored pencil.
    16. Glue the straw in the Model Magic to the back of the goal post. 
    17. Glue each goal post to the edge of each end of the field. 

Ready, set, hut...... touchdown!
