Decorate The House

Have just as much fun decorating as actually celebrating! Olympic rings, Olympic torches, national flags and more. Find a store selling Olympic party goods or follow some of the crafts below to decorate the house in Olympic-themed items. A great way to bring color to the celebration is to hang up streamers in each Olympic color. 

Create Olympic Medals

Create your own Olympic medals from cardboard and paint. You need to cut out 3 circles from a piece of cardboard, paint them in bronze, silver, and gold paint and attach a long string to create a medal that hangs comfortably from your neck. Be sure to wait for these to dry properly and then use these handmade medals to bestow upon your own little Olympic champions. 

Make American Flags

A crucial part of the Olympics is national pride, and flags are a big part of showing this pride. This is a fun American Flag craft that works for kids of all ages and is a great way to show American pride and to cheer on the American Olympic athletes.

Olympic Themed Foods

The next step in an Olympic celebration is food. A very easy way to make Olympic food is a Cheetos torch. With just an ice cream cone and some Cheetos, you can have an edible Olympic torch. All you need to do is place a handful of Cheetos in the cone and You can find this recipe and more Olympic-themed food recipes to follow on Kid Friendly Olympics Party

Olympic Baked Goods

Whether it’s an Olympic Torch Cupcake or Olympic Rings Doughnuts, there are many fun Olympic-themed baked goods to try making with your kids. The best way to host your Olympics at home is to have food that fits the occasion and these baked goods certainly do the trick. 

Create an Obstacle Course

Move your couch and your coffee table, it’s time to set up a living room obstacle course! Using things you have around the house such as pillows, chairs, and blankets create a challenging course that your child can navigate as they race to the finish line. Some fun ideas for this course are to use exercise throughout the course (i.e Hula Hoop five times then continue or do five Jumping Jacks then continue) and to have your kid jump over some objects.
