How DiGiorno Helped Us Watch the Game… With Kids!

DiGiorno Disclosure

As parents Tim and I enjoy watching TV shows and movies together because it’s free, it doesn’t require moving, and we can enjoy it after the kids are in bed. We’re incredibly exciting like that. Late night date night at home is our favorite because… pajamas. However, we like to watch sports as they are happening. Watching a recorded football game that you already know the outcome to just isn’t the same. So what do you do with the children? Ours aren’t particularly fond of sports yet. Joshua did play tee ball last year so he kind of likes to watch baseball for about 27 seconds, but then what? Forget about Olivia. If it’s not a cartoon don’t even bother.

So I came up with a plan in order to get through the game without whining, boredom, or meltdowns. With what you ask? Food, treats, and coloring pages of course. Almost 6 months ago a new Walmart was built just a couple of streets over making it ever so nice to pop in and grab a few things.

At only $4.50 DiGiorno makes it so affordable to get a pizza for every preference. The kids and I like cheese and Tim likes it with everything. It doesn’t just have to be for special occasions. Little Miss 3-year old loves pizza and asks for it almost every day. On rushed days or tired days we can have it out of the freezer and on the table quicker than ordering or picking it up from the local pizza place.

We were able to watch most of the game without too much interruption from cute littles. They were happily occupied with all the various activities. Olivia’s favorite is always the pizza. She’s my little carb queen. I think it helps not having to use utensils. Her little hands are still practicing, but sometimes they need a break!

Joshua could color all day if we let him, so I gave him some blank paper and football-themed print outs and he was a happy little camper. No fancy distractions needed here!

The game was a success! I’m glad that my plan worked because we’ll need to implement it again with future big games!

How do you entertain your little ones while you watch the game?

    Great idea to keep the kids occupied during the game! We usually dvr the shows we want to see and watch them once the kids go to bed! and yes – DiGiorno pizza (and m&Ms!) is the best easy supper!

    Oh! You make me want pizza…like NOW. Cute ideas to keep the kids busy too, I love shopping for great deals on good food!

  8. Oh Digiorno is so good! It is one of our favorite pizzas! I am lucky, my toddler loves pizza AND the game! LOL

  9. Haven’t had Digiorno in a while. This post made me want some! I’m going to tell me hubby to pick some up on his way home from work.

  10. My kids and I love Digornio pizzas! Where do you find them for that cheap though? Our stores are no less than $7.50 a pizza but I get the stuffed crust pepperoni.

    Thanks for the post!

    • Walmart had them on Rollback a while ago. Frozen pizza tends to go on sale before holidays or big games. Keep an eye out and you should be able to find a great deal!

    I usually don’t watch with them, lol. They are either at grandma’s or I just don’t watch.

    We had Digiorno last night! LOVE IT! It is the best frozen pizza by far. Does NOT taste frozen. We love the packs that come with the pizza and the cookies!
