How to Host Your Own Mini-Olympics at Home

How to Host Your Own Mini-Olympics at Home. The 2021 Summer Olympics kick off on Jul. 23 and will be must-see TV for families across the world. Don’t want to stop at just watching the games? Go ahead and create your own mini-Olympics right at home. We’ve found 5 ideas from families around the world on how to host your own bash. Here’s to letting this year’s golden games inspire the whole family!

Olympics Party Games and Activities

  • Hand out the paper-towel-tube torches, then tell the kids to have a relay race, passing the torches as they go through an obstacle course.
  • Purchase blue, yellow, black, green, and red hula hoops (the colors of the Olympic rings), and have a contest to see who can hula hoop the longest. Give the hoops away as favors at the end of the party.
  • Play tug o’ war.
  • Consider some pool party or water games as part of the fun.
  • Invent your own game with rules. You would be surprised how creative kids can be.

Craft and Food Ideas

  • Serve a variety of snacks of international foods and decorate with small flags from around the world. Try Phoenicia Specialty Foods for some great suggestions to serve.
  • Make poster boards by painting rings of the Olympic colors.
  • Make gold tissue paper plates and metals using dollar store finds.
