Can’t make the long trip south to the Summer Olympic games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil like I did? Then, how about hosting an Olympics party of your own at home!
My friend recently threw a darling Olympic themed birthday party for her eight-year-old son. With Olympic party decorations, competitions and races it proved to be an interactive, entertaining and patriotic theme for a birthday party.
Don’t have a family birthday to celebrate in August? It’s also a great idea for a summer Olympic viewing party or beach barbecue too!

Alex Flanagan co-founded I love to watch you play in 2015. She was flying home from an NFL work assignment when a learning specialist, who was sitting next to her, shared 5 reasons she shouldn’t feel guilty missing her son’s game. She shared their conversation on her own website alexflanagan.com and the response was so overwhelming it inspired her to create ILTWYP to help parents like herself navigate youth sports.
