We made shirts the week leading up to the opening ceremony. Pretty simple. Fabric paint and jar lid tops-the metal rings. For Milo's I used toilet paper rolls since his had to be smaller. And Corduroy and Ady did their own. Clover helped me with hers.
That night we had a game night and played about 3 board games. Adam went to the bathroom after I pulled out Pretty, Pretty Princess. Then we awarded medals to the top 3 winners. Dinner was pancakes that I colored to be Olympic rings.
The girls got all dressed up in their new shirts and we settled down to watch the opening ceremony. I had made bingo cards for all of us. Another one of our games to earn a medal for. I got the idea of a couple blogs and made them really quick by copying by sight one I had seen. Then we all went downstairs and I realized they were 3x4 squares. I am not sure how that girl thought someone was supposed to get a fair bingo with 3 across and 4 down so I ran upstairs and quickly changed them. She did have cute ideas for pictures though. She must have been hearing a lot about the ceremonies because she new a lot of what would be seen throughout, although I never did see a sheep...
We've been watching a lot here but the girls are already bored of it. They like gymnastics but they don't show it on TV here till about 9 or 10pm. My kids are in bed way before then.
We have been playing games here and there throughout the week and adding medals to our board when we finish a game. Sometimes we tie and then we all get medals!
