ROOM OLYMPICS

The Summer Olympics have been postponed, but who says you can't still have the olympics in your home?!

1PLAN

Sketch a diagram of the space that you'll be playing in. We've shown an example of our house. You don't need to play in every room, but it's good to know what your options are. You can play inside and outside.

2SELECT

Make a list of games you like to play. It's best to pick ones that have multiple players and don't take a long time to play. Sometimes you can figure out ways to make long games shorter.

See examples below.

3MATCH

Match the games you have to each room. It's okay to have more than one game in a room, but a lot of the fun is in matching the game to the room. For instance, you can have a game that involves water in a bathroom.

4TRACK

Write down the rules for the game and how you're going to award points.

Make a chart for keeping track of the games and scores.

5play!

Gather the contestants (uniforms optional)! Cue the song Olympic Fanfare and Theme. Light the olympic torch.

Let the games begin!
