We started the party by having them decorate their own flags to carry in the Opening Ceremony. I tore up an old bed sheet for them to use, then stitched them onto bamboo garden stakes.
Then the first of the Games started. Cary and A did a great job of putting them through 10 events and charting their progress. There was running, cycling, long jump, 'discus', 'shot put', gymnastics and we finished off with an obstacle course.
We enjoyed chocolate cupcakes decorated with Olympic rings before holding the Closing Ceremonies and Medal Presentations.
Some of the shots I captured of them receiving their Gold Medals ~ cut out with the Scallop Circle Die and our Maple Leaf embossed with gold on Gold paper~ has me thinking they were all pretty proud of their efforts and pleased with themselves!
I'd had this banner up for her Birthday...so I just added a few rows of streamers back and forth across the room around it to liven it up a bit more.
Thanks for stopping by,
