Hello dear ones, I hope you are well. Two years ago we had our first Family Olympics. You can find the link here: https://amberdover.wordpress.com/2013/07/07/my-family-rocks-sunday-2013-family-olympics/
This year we spent Independence Day having our second Family Olympics. I also have July 4th crafts to share with you. Here we go :).
We made 4th of July T-shirts.
Michael and Chris tie dyed a red, white, and blue shirt.
I used Leeland’s hand print and craft sticks to make this U.S. flag onesie.
Michael did a lapbook on the U.S. flag. Link here:
Then Michael made me a red, white, and blue necklace out of beads.
We also did a state lapbook. Link here: http://www.currclick.com/product/76669/United-States-Alabama–Speedy-Lapbook
I really love this event and I can’t wait until the next one. We should really have winter Olympics as well. We began by making our personal flags to represent us in the games.
We used index cards to keep score. Here are the events:
My Step Dad Kim
- Foam Sword fighting
Me and Mom~ This was fun, but a word to the wise…make sure you zip up the trampoline if you use it. When Michael and I were sword fighting he actually fell through the unzipped part of the trampoline screen. Thankfully he didn’t hit his head too hard. It was scary though.
- Airplane Toss
- Egg Race
- Sac Race
Then just for fun:
- Parachute games
- Michael’s 4th grade piano recital. He played The Star Spangled Banner and Amazing Grace.
All of us won at least one medal, but Kim won the trophy.
God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
