An Olympic Sized Event

I have been counting down to the 2012 Summer Olympics since the 2008 Games ended. I absolutely love watching the world's best athletes competing in some of the most exciting events. You can bet that tonight I will be glued to the TV watching the opening ceremonies!

While all of this excitement goes on, try having your own Olympic Games! Take the kids outside and challenge them to a race around the block. Give out a medal to the winner! It is always great to pretend you are an Olympic athlete and it gives the kids a chance to get outside and run around in between watching the events on TV.

I can remember pretending to be a gymnast when I was younger and the gymnastics events are still my favorite to watch. It is important to still stay active, of course! But with the Olympics on TV it may be a little harder to get the youngsters outside. So create a few of your own events and medals and have a great time!
