How to celebrate AFL Grand Final

Found In: Activities

This is one of many free activities.
Golden Carers has 1000s of activities and resources for senior care.

Here are a few ideas to help celebrate the AFL Grand Final!

  1. Choose one or all of the following sweeps:
    • Winning team and margin
    • Combined Score
    • First goal kicker
    • Last goal kicker
    • Norm Smith winner
    • Player who score the first goal for each quarter
    If you work in an assisted living hostel and management allows a little gambling, make it $.20 cents for each bet (above).

    Alternatively offer a few prizes such as marshmallows and crisps bags, biscuit crackers, chocolates, magnets, packets of tic-tac mints, decorated hats (Melbourne Cup is around the corner), boxes of raisins and nuts.

    NOTE: Consult clinical staff to see if edible prizes are suitable.
  2. Sweep Game
    • Divide audience into groups to represent each team in the Grand Final; each group with 5 or 6 players.
    • Each time a player takes possession of the ball everybody from that group/team cheers and has a drink.
    • Each time a player kicks a goal all participants of that group/team get up and shout the player’s name 3 times with arms up in the air, waving the pom-poms (good exercise!). No prizes or money involved, just good, old fashioned fun!
  3. Beer Pong Game
  4. BBQ Lunch:
    • Sausage sizzle, hamburgers, chips
    • Sausage rolls and ‘Four n Twenty’ mini pies for finger food
    • Lamingtons or Pavlova for desert
  5. Craft for AFL Grand Final:
    • Catherine Wheel to decorate facility.
    • Home-made cheerleader pompoms.

Have a great grand final!

We get Arrowroot biscuits and residents ice them in the team colours of the two AFL footy teams.
For example, we used black, red and white striped icing for St Kilda and Red, Yellow and Blue for the Adelaide Crows. Can do all the AFL teams if you wanted to.
We ate them at Half time for afternoon tea.
We also had different coloured cordial to match the team colours.
And party pies!
