If you are at home during the summer, why not plan a fun backyard Olympics for your kids! You don’t have to know anything about the Olympics to make a fun backyard Olympic experience that your kids will love! Here is how to plan your own backyard Olympics.
You can have your kids divide into groups if you have enough, or you can have them compete in single-person teams. Once your kids are separated into teams, have them make their own team flag and country name!
Break Into Teams
CREATE YOUR OWN UNIFORMS This can be a fun way for them to be a little creative and show off their new team pride!
PLAY THE GAMES
Plan your games based on how many participants you have and how long you have to play the games.
– 100-meter race – Simple gymnastics – Tug of war – Water balloon toss – Egg on a spoon race
After all of the games have been completed, it’s time to have the awards ceremony! Create a fun meal for your kids to eat and celebrate their achievements!
