Olympics Games for Kids

Written by contributor Rachelle Gilmore

My 4-year-old daughter Molly, really wanted to throw a party with our summer playdate group. What better excuse then to celebrate the Olympics! And let me tell ya— they turned out to be a nice group of athletes! The kids competed in Water Archery, Balloon Run (proving to be the most difficult), Ball Toss, Yoga and Sliding! We took lots of water breaks and even stopped briefly for a cupcake. At the end of the play date, I passed out watermelon popcicles and had the pleasure of putting gold medals on all of our little athletes.

    Such a great idea!

    When my now 8 year old son was in preschool, we lived on the Big Island of Hawaii,in Kaiua-Kona, where they hold the annual Ironman Triathalon.

    Each year his preschool held a Keiki (means child in Hawaiian) Triathalon. Where the preschoolers rode their trikes, or bikes with training wheels, ran a course, and waded through blow up swimming pools.

    Great memories :-)
