Hold Your Own Backyard Olympics!

Are you and your kids ready to go for the gold? With the Summer Olympics in full swing, you won't want to miss the Little Passports list of Rio-ready activities to keep your little ones on their feet and having fun!

Create backyard events such as the Long Jump, Paper Plate Discus, and Squirt Gun Archery. Consider inviting over friends and neighbors and hold your own backyard Olympics!


To make your own Olympic flag for the opening ceremony, check out this DIY Olympic Flag Craft. To complete the opening ceremony, the Olympic torch is passed from athlete to athlete until it reaches the last person, who lights the stadium cauldron. Create your own Olympic torch for your mini Olympic games.



Encourage your budding Olympians to learn about and represent different countries. Dress up in your country’s colors, march in to the national anthem, and wave the country's flag while standing on the podium!

Finally, learn more about Greece, the birthplace of the Olympics, with a subscription to Little Passports World Edition for 6-10 year olds.

Let the games begin!
