World Cup Fever - Germany Beats Argentina 4-0

Well everyone - it was a spectacular day for soccer (football) in South Africa today. And Germany did not disappoint the multitude of fans who turned out to cheer them on. The game was won 4-0 in Germany's favour - what a match! I could hardly believe the screen myself as I was watching the game, after all Argentina is a formidable opponent. I am very excited that they won the game and in such a big way too! the next match will be on Wednesday with Germany playing against Spain. This one is going to be a good one.

 The streets of Berlin were packed with people cheering on the German national team today. The sheer amount of people who showed up is incredible!

I don't have any soccer themed projects of my own to post here but I did find a few fun ones on the internet to share with you all. The first is a fun felt beanbag. The black felt has been sewn onto the white and then whipstitched together. The original project can be found HERE . This would be a fun craft to make for a Soccer themed party where contestants would play the traditonal game of beanbag toss but with "soccer balls".

Of course no party would be complete without refreshments, and why not a themed cake?
this one was found HERE .

I won't be able to have a Soccer party of my own but I hope that some of you will be celebrating and watching the upcoming games with friends and family - no matter what team you are cheering for.
Best of luck to all four remaining teams!
