An estimated 100 million football fans watch the Super Bowl each year, but when you're a kid, the Super Bowl can be, well, super boring. Fortunately, there are lots of fun ways for kids to celebrate the Super Bowl without actually watching the big game. Here are a few you might want to try.

1. Keep them in the kitchen.

For a lot of people, the Super Bowl is all about the snacks. So if your kids love to cook, this is the chance to let their creativity and culinary skills shine. Children as young as 5 or 6 can prepare 7-Layer Dip "Super Bowls".

Prefer to serve a sweet treat? Let them dip and decorate Chocolate Covered Strawberry Footballs. They'll get messy, but they're guaranteed to have a good time — no matter what the score.

2. Teach them to play flag football.

Kids love being active. So for them, it's a lot more fun to get out and play the game themselves than it is to watch a bunch of overpaid millionaires playing it on TV. Gather your family or a group of friends, review the rules, and then play a "Super Bowl" of your own.

3. Show your team spirit.

The Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos will go head to head on February 2, and artistic kids will love creating signs and banners to support their favorite team. Use football-shaped crayons (in the appropriate team colors of course) to add to your Super Bowl theme.

4. Stock up on Super Bowl printables.

There are tons of football-themed printables available online, so you're sure to find at least one that will suit your child's age and ability:

5. Play Wall Football.

Too cold to play football outside? You can still enjoy a great game of Wall Football, which describes as the "pigskin version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey." For kids who enjoy video games, try a few games of free online Pro Football.

6. Have a family-friendly Super Bowl Party.

Kids love a good party, and a Super Bowl party is no exception. See 7 Excellent Ideas for a Family-Friendly Super Bowl Party if you need a bit of inspiration.

Will your kids watch the Super Bowl? Will you?
