To prepare for our Carolina Olympics we made signs (thanks MomSwimBikeRun). I love simple crafts and this one was simple. Cups dipped in paint and placed on poster board making Olympic Rings. The kids loved making the signs. We used three for the opening ceremony and cut the rest for our event signs.

Our events were the Bean Bag Toss, Kicking Soccer Goals, Cycling, 50 meter dash, Baseball, Archery, and the Long Jump. My favorite was the 50 meter dash. The little girls ran a shorter distance, but ran their little legs to the finish line. It was just precious! Enjoy the pictures.

Our last two events were the long jump which was very funny. Emma and her long legs jumped the farthest at 55 inches. She landed standing up. I think everyone else fell after jumping. Elena and Leah jumped barely, but they had fun trying!
