I love watching the Olympics, but the summer Olympics are by far my favorite to watch. I mean the Winter Olympics are fun and all too, but there's just something I like more about the summer games.

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do some Olympic themed activities with my kids. I wanted to get them into the spirit of the games too.

Basically, we've been hosting our own backyard Olympics - er, sunroom - right at home with pool noodles. Yes, pool noodles! We use them for sooo many things!

I know that your kids are going to love pretending to host their own Olympic Games too with these fun Olympic activities for kids. There's ideas to take you from the torch relay to the actual events themselves. There are some crafts as well and basically a little bit of everything in between too.
