Olympic Fever

Have you been watching the Olympics? I love how the whole world stops to watch—more than 11,000 athletes from 207 nations this year! I’ve been out and about but loving receiving text updates and watching highlights. I’m most obsessed with Simone Biles, but shout outs are also deserved by Simone Manuel, MP, Usain Bolt and Katie Ledecky.

How are you celebrating the Olympics? It’s not too late to jump on board and make a party of it!

This blog showcases some creative backyard olympic game ideas.

Another momma shares her celebration here (I’ve decided ribbon twirling should be incorporated into many more festivities year round). I liked this one too.

Olympic-themed craft ideas here.

Books to read with your kids about the Olympics and olympians.

Also a great opportunity to teach kiddos (and adults) international flags.

This chalk photo shoot is still my favorite (credit: Huffington Post from the 2012 Olympics).

You can view the full schedule in Rio here and remember the closing ceremony is this Sunday!

PS. My Pinterest research concluded that gold medals are best made (and enjoyed) out of golden Oreos and Fruit by the Foot if you’re in need of a little treat while watching this week.
