One of my dearest friends, who also was my college roommate, is coming with her wonderful family (which we love as much as her). Their visit is during the opening day of the Olympics. Wanting to make it special and memorable (and of course a learning experience), I'm wanting to plan something fun for both kids and adults to celebrate this inspiring and amazing event.
Does anyone have any great ideas?
I want to make this simple so I will actual do it and not totally wear myself out so I can't enjoy our guests, (remember what is most important here). Here is the brainstorming that was done while sitting in my car today:
Pizza with different sections being topped with food that represent a certain country? (Canadian bacon, Italian sausage, etc)
Flag toothpicks (representing each country)and have in appetizers?
Have each child pick a country (out of a hat or one that they want) prior to the day and tell us a bit about it?
The child/adult gets up when their country is announced and walk around the room (hee, hee)?
Instead of t-shirt, make socks, headband, bandanas or something else?
Spray hula hoops Olympic colors?
Do back handsprings in the yard? (just kidding)
Okay, there has got to be other really cool ideas out there in Blogland.
Please share yours. Can you hear the Olympic music playing?
