Paper Football

Supplies Needed:

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Markers (for optional decoration)


  • Fold your paper lengthwise like a hotdog.
  • Cut the fold to make two half sheets.
  • Fold one of the half sheets lengthwise like a hotdog.

  • With the opening facing right, fold the bottom right corner upwards to form a triangle.
  • Repeat this fold until one fold is left to make a complete triangle.
  • Insert the remaining corner into the folds of the football.

  • Now, game on! One player holds up the goal by making two ‘L’ shapes with their hands. The thumbs should be touching so together your hands form a ‘U’ shape.
  • The other player tries to score their football in the goal by flicking the bottom of the triangle with their finger.
