Who will be tuning in for the Winter Olympic Games this year? Opening ceremonies begin February 9th in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and we couldn’t be more excited. The Olympics truly are a showcase of the most incredible athletes in the world, and a thrilling event for the whole family. Go Team USA! Want to bring some of the excitement from Pyeongchang into your own home? Check out these ideas to set up your own Winter Games in your own home and/or backyard:
Downhill Bobsled Race
We love this idea Makes and Takes, and all it takes is some toy cars, an empty wrapping paper tube and a little bit of imagination (we’ve also seen this craft using ice cubes if you don’t have cars)! Check out Makes and Takes for all the details. Wonder who’ll win?
Tabletop Ice Hockey
Ice hockey fans will love this idea from Handmade Charlotte. Any large pan will do — check out her site for all the (easy) instructions! And hey, if your toys want to go ice skating on the rink, too, that’s perfectly acceptable. Stick it back in the freezer when you’re done for future games!
Play Party Plan is a great site for all sorts of games and party inspiration, and this “ski jump” with ping pong balls (or whatever kind of balls your kids have) does not disappoint! A crowd pleaser for the whole family, check out their site for all the instructions to create your own ski jump. Good luck!
Winter Olympics Cookies
After your little one has played some games, what about celebrating with this Olympic ring cookie recipe from Counting Candles? Too cute!
