2. How do you keep the kids entertained?

Hopefully if you are taking your kids it’s because they want to see some football action.  However, if you have a child like mine with a short attention span every now and then, they will eventually get bored.  So what else can you do with them at practice?  Glad you asked.

There will be a Kids Interactive Zone.  If you’d like your kids to play here, it will be set up on the north end concourse.  There will be activities such as quarterback toss, an obstacle course, and other football drills.  Please keep in mind this requires registration prior to entering the zone.  This will be available through Thursday August 13th’s practice.  The thought by the Cardinals here was to shut it down after that since most Valley kids will be back in school by then.

There will also be a children’s autograph experience.  Children ages 2 thru 12 will be able to get free autographs from players post-practice.  Children will be required to have a wristband in order to participate in this activity.  The wristbands will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis at tables set up at the Kids Interactive Zone.  Please keep in mind the number of wristbands provided will be limited.

Take them to the Team Shop as well.  Get your son that foam finger he’s always needed.  Oh wait, I’m the sucker that did that.  Never mind.  However, there will be plenty of items available in there as is during the preseason and regular season games.  Don’t worry, I’m sure there are still some Kevin Kolb jersey’s on the clearance rack.
