NEWORLEANS - Thursday is the first full day of the NFL Experience at the Morial Convention Center.

It's a huge playground for kids and for the kid at heart.

There's one cool exhibit that explains step-by step just how footballs are made.

Melanie Hebert got one of the first looks at what it takes to make the pigskin.

You can learn more about footballs or buy one for your next pickup game at the NFL Experience. It is from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. at the Morial Convention Center. For more information, visit http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/47/events/nfl-experience.
