I'm excited for the 2012 London Olympics! I find the Olympics to be inspiring. I want to share that with my children, so to help them become excited for the Olympics, too, we hosted an Olympic Playdate.
Here is the party plan:
We live in a cul-de-sac, so for the relay I stationed our athletes around the circle. I played the Olympic Theme, specifically Bugler's Dream and Olympic Fanfare Medley, as they ran the torch to the next runner. This was really fun as our athletes cheered each other on around the neighborhood.

As a quick treat after the torch run, to complete our Opening Ceremonies, we enjoyed a sugary snack. I came up with an easier way to reproduce the Olympic Torch treat created by TheHomeTeacher.blogspot.com. Our torches use regular size ice cream cones, jumbo marshmallows, and fruit roll-ups. Stuff a marshmallow into the cone, cut a slit in the top of the marshmallow, and stick in a triangular piece of the roll-up.
