Okay, I’ve got one more round of Olympic fun for you! Since my girls are really into all things tiny (i.e. fairies), we decided to do some itty bitty Olympic events. Here’s what we did:
Wind & Clouds – The weather fairies have to blow the clouds away, so the sun can shine on Fairy Garden. Use a straw to blow cotton balls across a finish line, into a bucket turned on its side, or off the edge of a table. We blew ours off of a paper sun. (This is *great* for strengthening oral muscles, by the way!)
Penny Toss – We tossed pennies (aka fairy money) into an egg tray (aka the Fairy Bank).
Fairy Soup – We carried pom poms and jewel beads on tiny spoons from our play tea set. We worked together to carry one piece at a time until we filled a tiny bowl — mmmm, fairy soup!
Straw Javelin Toss – We tossed our little plastic straw javelins, then measured how far they went.
Ah, this was fun — and all the fairies in the land came out to watch the events! :) And, as an added bonus, the girls zipped off to create their own mermaid and princess olympics when we were done!
Have a wonderful weekend!
