We are snowed in!
So we're coming up with some fun things to do today and maybe for the next couple of days.
We are getting very excited about the Winter Olympic Games Starting on Friday; so we thought we'd watch Cool Runnings
Anyone remember the 1988 Olympics in Calgary? I do. Everyone thought it was funny to see guys from a tropical island racing in a bobsled and then came their crash and they all got out and walked with their sled to the finish line--one of those famous Olympic Inspirational moments. The characters in the movie are fictional but the actual footage from that crash is used in the movie. So we'll curl up under blankets with some popcorn and get ready for Friday.
Along the Olympic theme, I saw this cute idea on Crayola's website; so maybe later we'll try this Snow Sports Craft
Here are some other fun snowy or Olympic themed movies that are good for families:
The Cutting Edge
The First Olympics
The Mighty Ducks
The Call of the Wild
March of the Penguins
More Olympic themed Crafts that look fun:
Olympic Rings from paper plates, might be fun to ties strings to each side and hang it up
Olympic Medal Chart, keep track of which country has the most medals
