With the torch lit and the hills covered in snow, it is easy to see why kids are so excited about the Winter Olympics Games. In fact, a Winter Olympics Birthday Party is a fantastic way to celebrate your own child’s momentous day.
For cool invitations, cut out cardboard circles and paint gold to look like Olympics medals. Use a black marker to write “WINNER” on one side and your party details on the other. Attach colorful ribbon and you are ready to hand them out. Another option is purchasing USA themed invitations, along with your birthday party paper supplies.
As your birthday party athletes arrive, greet each one with a sport pack (towel, headband, Gatorade, and a baseball cap). Naturally, the next step is the torch run (out of cardboard and construction paper) and the Opening Ceremony (introductions and official declaration). Your winter game schedule can include:
- Timed Sled Race: that’s right, who can sled down the hill the fastest? This is fun on grass, too, so don’t worry if there isn’t any snow
- Snowman Building: who can build the biggest, funniest, skinniest, or tiniest snowman? No snow? Use cotton balls, pipe cleaners, pom poms, and glue.
- Winter Olympics Obstacle: set up an obstacle course through the snow
- Snowball Relay: you can use real snow balls or Styrofoam balls on spoons
- Medal Ceremony: purchase some shiny medals and reward the athletes for their hard work
To feed your athletic kids, serve them food from around the world: pasta, burgers, pierogies, sushi, vegetable curry … the list is endless for great ideas. Trust me – these hungry contenders will eat it all.
Let the Winter Olympic Birthday Party begin!
