Games - No Western Day Spirit Week would be complete without some good old fashion rodeo games. Riding on a mechanical bull, roping and lassoing, horseshoes, and a boot throwing contest are just some of the fun activities you can offer students. You could also host an arm wrestling tournament or a horse racing game with moving horses to really get everyone in the spirit. You could also incorporate a wild west tug of war, where teams compete to see who can pull the rope the hardest.

Serve up some barbecue brisket, baked beans, and cornbread for lunch, and even offer cowboy hats and bandanas to add to the atmosphere. Some schools even go all out by hosting their own chili cook-off, complete with judges and prizes for the winner

Chalk Art - Chalk art is a great way to promote creativity within the school. Students could decorate the school grounds or sidewalks with Western-themed art, such as cowboy boots, hats or horses. Encourage other students to participate by having a Western-themed art contest on the last day of Western Day Spirit Week, with prizes rewarded to the top artists.
