The kids were home from school for President’s Day so we had our own Olympic games. Each child chose a country and then made a mascot and got a flag. We had a parade, a lighting of the “torch” (candles), a celebration with snaps and confetti, and made the medals. Then the events started: water balloon throw, paper airplane folding and throw, fishing, balancing an object on head, shooting targets with toy gun, drinking water contest, tiddlywinks, and others. To wrap things up we even had a medals ceremony. So much fun! The kids really enjoyed watching some events on TV, too.
