It’s almost time to celebrate the Summer Games!

Get your kids in the spirit with fun games and activities to celebrate the Summer Games right at your school or center! Host your own event, or have a party celebrating the Summer Games. It’s a great opportunity to teach kids about different countries, cultures and traditions, while having fun.

Let the competition begin! Create games and contests that young kids can participate and enjoy. Here are just a few ideas to get you started

  • Tug of war
  • Shoe kick
  • Water Balloon Toss
  • Somersault race
  • Spoon race


It wouldn’t be the Summer Games without medals. Give them as prizes or hand them out to all the kids to recognize participation. Or use ribbons to recognize the participants. Either way they will be proud to accept their awards.


Decorate your space with torch decorations and flags from around the world. Have the kids create colored rings to welcome the participants.
