Hockey Playoffs Classroom Pool


I grew up watching the Habs play on Hockey Night in Canada with my dad every Saturday night.  It’s one of my fondest childhood memories.  I love hockey, so naturally, I get very excited this time of year when the playoffs are about to begin!  How cool would it be to host a Hockey Playoffs Pool in your classroom?!  I woke up with the idea this morning and quickly made my own Stanley Cup for my own class (someday).  It was super easy to make! 


For mine, I used a plastic garbage pail that I found at the DollarStore (love that place!), a large yogurt container, a large bowl and some aluminum foil.  The entire trophy cost me about $5 to make! 


I hot glued all the containers together like this:


Finally, I covered it all in aluminum foil and glued the edges down.  

That’s it!!  Simple, right? I figure that each year, I could write the name of the winning team and student(s) on a label and stick it on our classroom Stanley Cup!  How fun would that be?!

Naturally, I couldn't stop there.  So, I created this awesome resource to use to help organize a classroom hockey playoffs pool.  

Everything you need is included (record sheets for quarterfinals  semifinals, finals for both Eastern and Western Conferences, lists of teams, etc), as well as a list of ideas and suggestions, websites and instructions on how to make your own Stanley Cup.



A few years ago, I was an EA in a classroom where the teacher did this kind of activity.  The kids were so excited about it!  What are you waiting for?  Get your copy today at 50% off (until Tuesday)!  The playoffs start on Tuesday, April 30th!

Who's your favourite hockey team?
