We’ve found a set of free Olympics printables that bring the excitement
of the far-away Olympics a little closer, no passport required. Which is great because the closest we’re going to get to London for the Summer Olympics is through our television and laptop screens.
New-to-the-U.S., personalized-gift shop, Tinyme, has an entire roster of cute and totally free Olympics Printables that will help keep the excitement going even when I need to shut off the television. Some can even be personalized.
My family will love the Opening Ceremony Bingo Cards which we can play while we all stay up way past our bedtime to watch the Parade of Nations. And during the games, my kids will have fun keeping tally of the awards for their favorite countries using the Personalized Tally Cards. Though my daughter’s current obsession with Azerbaijan may not keep her too busy.
Since I hope the Olympics also inspire my kids to create their own active games, I love the personalized medals we can print out and assemble to hand out to friends. Our games might include the Backyard Dash and the Driveway Bicycle Races, but they will still be pretty competitive. Tinyme offers gold, silver and bronze medals, or just go ahead and pass out all gold and save yourself the agony of defeat.
Even beyond the games, the Flag Playing Cards and Design-Your-Own Flag printable are both great ways to build “flag awareness” even before Friday’s opening ceremony. Let your kids design their own flag to fly high whenever they parade into the room to watch another competition. -Christina
