Olympic Games for Kids

My family loves the Olympics, and since I was a competitive swimmer growing up, I have a definite soft spot for the Summer Games. I just wanted to round up my favorite ideas for the Olympic Games for kids, in case you’d like to whip up some Olympic themed family fun this weekend!

Channel the spirit of Rio with my fun Brazil banner, and you might want to show a little home country pride as well with this US banner.

How To Make An Olympic Time Capsule

I really love this idea of making an Olympic Time Capsule — if you’ve done it with us in the past, now is the time to dig your time capsule out of the closet and do a little update. My favorite part is measuring how far everyone can jump and comparing the progress at the next Olympics!

What would the Olympics be without Gold Medals? Your kids will have a great time using clay to sculpt their own Gold Medals. Older kids might enjoy trying to replicate the 2016 Rio Medals, which the first one was just handed out today to American Virgina Thrasher!
