12 Summer Olympic Games, Activities, and Treats for Kids

We are one week away from the 2012 Summer Olympic Games!

It’s almost time to watch as athletes from all over the world meet in London, England and compete to see who’s the best in the world. Our family gets right in there, watching as much of the fun as we can! We love swimming, track and field, and especially gymnastics. I’ve been a huge fan of gymnastics since I was little. And now that my little ones are taking gymnastics class, they are excited to watch the games as well.

To get in the spirit of it all, we’ve got a fun lineup of kids games and activities to help celebrate.
