The Summer Olympics start this Friday in Rio de Janeiro, and we could not be more excited!! If you love getting into the spirit of the Games, you’ve come to the right place!

 

  1. LEARN ABOUT THE RINGS
    One of the best parts about the Olympics is their deep roots in tradition, but how much do you really know about its history? Learn more about the rings from Planet Smarty here.

    Then test your knowledge with their super-cute, easy, and FREE printable Olympic sorting game here.

 

  1. SEND FAN MAIL
    Whether you tweet it, email it, or send it, be an active supporter and let your favorite athlete know you’re rooting for them!

 

  1. BAKE OLYMPIC TREATS
    Do more than just watch the Olympics this year–create something delicious inspired by them! The lovely ladies at Pretty Providence show you 20 Olympic Crafts & Recipes here. We can’t wait to make the Olympic torch cupcakes!

 

  1. TRY BRAZILIAN FOOD
    From pão de queijo (cheese bread bites) to mousse de maracujá (passionfruit mousse), Brazil features authentic cuisine as delicious as it sounds. Celebrate the Olympic host country by hosting your own Brazilian dinner party. This list of 24 Brazilian Foods You Need To Eat Right Now from Buzzfeed will definitely inspire your appetite.

 

  1. DIY MEDALS
    If you have restless kids at home who need a fun activity, make DIY medals! They can hold their own Olympic Games and award each other with the gold, silver, or bronze. The best part is that they are so cheap and easy to make with this post from Homemade Ginger!
