    • Cut out the shape of hockey masks, pucks and sticks out of construction paper and hang them around the party area. You can also create hockey wall decorations with fun sports sayings like "Go [favorite team name]!" or the logos of your favorite hockey teams.
  • Group bunches of latex and hockey balloons together and weigh them down with balloon weights or sports equipment.
  • Hang a hockey pinata in the party area. When the time to break the pinata comes, use a hockey stick instead of a bat!
  • Set up a hockey rink in your backyard or driveway using nets, sports cones and sidewalk chalk. Play a game of street hockey as a high-energy activity before food.

Serve treats that match your favorite hockey team. Try "Caps Ice Cream" (vanilla with Snow Caps), "Devils' Food Cake," or "Flyers Chicken Wings."
