We are a soccer loving family over here. Nathan and Logan have both been playing since they were 3 years old. They are following in their Dad’s footsteps. John played all of his school life. He actually started back up last year. Needless to say we spend a lot time on the soccer fields. I am a proud soccer mom and soccer wife. With the help of POWERADE® I put together a really fun sideline hero kit. I mean come on, at this age my boys care more about the snacks than the actual game.
When running around that hot field you need to keep the players hydrated. POWERADE® does the trick! You can’t have a sideline hero kit without fresh produce. I always think of oranges when I think of soccer snacks. I also picked up grapes and snap peas. All of these produce items are easy to transport and not messy. I know you’re thinking “snap peas?” My boys love them. They give a nice crunch to the snack without having to use a processed snack. I picked up all my supplies at Walmart. I can always find everything I need there.
I decided to make labels for the bottles. Since all the bottles look the same the kids end up getting them all mixed up. I’m not afraid of germs but would rather the kids not share them. It also doubles as a koozie to keep their hands from freezing. Do you call them koozies? John calls them coolies. They are super to easy to make!

Cut your felt into strips as wide as you’d like them and long enough to wrap around the bottle. Stick on the soccer ball. Paint on the name that you want on the felt. Let the paint dry. Lastly, stick the felt on the bottle. Now you have a fun personalized koozie for every player on the team. No mix ups and no sharing germs!
I think this is a great way to add some some flare to your sideline hero kit. The kids will get a kick out of seeing their names on their bottle. I just love this statement from POWERADE®: No matter who you are, we all started from the same place – just a kid from somewhere. POWERADE® believes that we all have the ability to power through and reach our athletic potential. POWERADE® is teaming up with the Boys and Girls Club, providing the belief, emotional and physical support, and hydration young athletes need to perform. So great! I love a company with a great message.
So now I’ve armed you with some inspiration for your own sideline hero kit. If you need more inspiration check this out. Getting away from processed foods can be super simple. Sometimes you have to think outside of the box. I try my best to be the best soccer mom for my little kickers. Keeping them hydrated, happy, and healthy are my three priorities.
