Football is the most popular sport in the world with about 250 million people playing the sport actively. This makes football a very important influencer of international popular culture. A normal football team is made up of 11 players. The aim of the game is to score as many goals as possible. A team scores a goal when a player uses any part of the body other than the hands to “shoot” the ball into the other teams goal. The goal is protected by the other teams goalkeeper. In todays Pritt project, we will make our very own football field. You can ask your friends to challenge you in a friendly game.
Cut out all the images in the documents that have been printed out.
Colour in the player shirts so that one shirt matches your favorite team. The other player should have other colours.
- F1 to F1
- F2 to F2
This will make your football field.
Now use image 1 and 2 to make your football goals. Glue the goals along the glue seems.
Place some glue onto the glue area on either end of the field. Then place your goals onto the glue areas as to glue the goals into place on the field.
Now fold and glue all the B1 and B2 images. These will make the barricade around the field.
Glue the barricades that you have made to the edge of the field. Make sure to glue the B1 barricades to the B1 areas and B2 barricades to the B2 areas. Now your field should be ready, but you still need your players and a ball.
To make a football for your field you must first pull all the toilette paper sheets apart from one another.
Place all the sheets flat down onto a table. Then place a thin layer of glue onto the entire surface of a square of paper. The whole piece of paper must be covered.
Now roll the glued sheet into a tight ball in the palms of your hands.
Now place a thin layer of glue onto the entire surface of the second square of paper. The whole piece of paper must be covered.
Now roll the glued sheet into a tight ball in the palms of your hands. If at the ends there are loose edges, use your glue stick to glue down the edges.
Repeat the process until you have used all the squares of paper. Once all the squares have been glued and you have rolled a tight ball, you can use a black felt pen to draw the football patterns onto the outside of the ball.
To make the players, you must glue the player’s shirt to his body. You then should stick the player to the cardboard breakfast box, using your glue stick. Then use your scissors to cut the players from the box. You can refer to the below picture for help.
And that is it!
You are ready to have some soccer fun.
We hope you have lots of fun with your soccer field.
We would love to see pictures of your rainstick. You can ask your parents to share your pictures with us on our Facebook page called “Pritt world”.
