The excitement is building for the Olympics kicking off this weekend so I wanted to share a few fun olympic games for kids and cool party ideas I've put together. This is such a fun party theme and it works for any age, boy or girl. Plus there are lots of activities to keep the kiddos busy and having a blast.

For our Olympic Theme Party we set up several stations around the house. I've also done this party outdoors,  it works for both, you just need to have a clear open space for the kids activities. First I set-up a sign-in station where the kids could grab a t-shirt and name tag. Then I hung signs and put out the activities for each station. Next “Refueling Station” filled with water and snacks in the kitchen and a decorated party table in lots of primary colors. Finally, the cake table!

I loved the Olympic Theme Cake, with the Olympic rings, torch and flags all around the sides.

After snacks and cake we held an awards ceremony and gave out gold medals and mini trophies. This was definitely one of my favorite parties and the parents all raved about how cool it was and how much their kids loved it. Now I need to pull out my glue gun and print off some of these to get my little guy geared up for the Olympics. What event are you guys most excited to watch?
