The Olympic-themed birthday party was a big success! So much fun – we are planning one for the Winter Olympics – which happens to be on my other son’s birthday in 2014!
Here’s a look at some of the food and events we held for the party. The weather was a bit hot – so we decided to cancel some of the events so the kids could just jump in the pool. We had to be flexible with so many kids and such hot temperatures. But everyone had a great time and had nothing but amazing things to say about the whole theme.
As you can see, we had a lot of food and a lot of fun!
We had the kids each make their own Olympic flag. We used the sewing machine to sew up end with enough room for a stick, bought white bandanas and sharpie markers, drew the Olympic rings on each flag and let the kids decorate the rest.
Once those were done, we had them line up and did a Parade of Nations, complete with music and introductions.
After that, game one!
We hosted a Javelin throw – with pool noodles. They used their flags to mark distance.
We then had an obstacle course around the pool area with fun activities.
We had many poor events planned – like pool noodle swimming, duck hunt with rubber pool duckies and more. But as mentioned- it was just too hot so open swim!
Then, everyone got their own medal!
