Family Summer Olympics

 It is Summer and a great time to head outdoors and get active with your family!

Imagine how fun it would be competing in a Do-It-Yourself  Summer Olympic event.

 Erika Burdick of B. Fit Long Island, loved this idea!  She said, “what a great idea for a fun for a summer weekend. Great for a get together with friends with kids too.”

You can include some classic games into your backyard Summer Olympics such as: Potato Sack Race, Tug of War, Relay Races, etc. But, we have some fun ideas below that will add a funny twist to your event. Such as:

Doodle Head

Play the game Doodle Head! A fun partner like Elizabeth Hashagen (Last year we did a fun segment with News 12 ) or my best friend, Nikki will make this messy and cheesy doodle game so much fun this summer.

Watch you will need is: 2 shower caps (found at local Dollar Tree), a can of shaving cream, and large cheese Doodles.

Wear a shower cap and cover it in shaving cream. Whoever gets the most cheese doodles on their opponents head wins.


Jousting on top of Milk Crates

Elizabeth and Anne were Momee vs Momee in this hysterical and fun game that teens and adults will love to play.

What you need is: 2 broom stick handles, 4 paper towel rolls, duct tape

Using broom stick handles and duct tape and paper towel rolls you can create this fun game. Duct tape the paper towel rolls to the end of each broomstick handle to create jousting sticks that you and your opponent can use to knock each other off of the milk crates.

End result: a lot of fun and smiles


Sand Pail Marshmallow Toss

Marshmallow Toss is a game using large marshmallows and your child’s sand pail.

You won’t believe how far the marshmallow will fly by flicking the shovel back and trying to get it into the pail.


Milk / Water Jug Catch Game

Cut the bottoms of your milk or water jug off to use to catch your duct tape ball. You can decorate the jugs for an added craft to this fun activity.


How cute would it be to present medals to your guests? These are a fun craft project:
