Another week over, so we’re highlighting some of our favorite picks this week! It may be warming up in some places around the globe, but it’s the very beginning of the 2014 Winter Olympics. We’ve decided to compile a list that combines patriotism, Olympic-watching parties, and a little inspiration to host your own family Olympics in the next few weeks.
Glass Spinner Stakes – Patriotic Heart
Get your patriotism off to a strong start with this fun red-white-and-blue glass spinner heart. With 230 Americans off to the Winter Olympics, this is the time to show your American pride, watch today’s opening ceremony, and do so by displaying our nation’s colors and flag!
Set of 4 Tumblers
Coming in four different colors, including red, white, and blue, this set of 4 tumblers is the perfect addition to any Winter Olympics celebration. Serve cocktails and kids’ drinks in these great insulated mugs to enjoy the games, no matter where you are!
Handled Casserole Dishes
Again, if you’re entertaining for this year’s Winter Games, make sure your tools are up to the task. We like this three-piece round casserole dish set for both cooking and serving. You can make warm Kale-Artichoke Dip in one, and serve cool pita chips and baby carrots in the other. With three sizes, these multi-purpose dishes are ideal for serving up a storm! Stay warm together watching the Olympics and enjoy dips, soups, casseroles, and more!
Giddy Up Racing Horse Hoppers
There may not be any horse-related events in the Wither Olympics, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create your own backyard competition with these kids’ horse hoppers! If you want to make it similar to traditional Steeplechase, consider adding hula-hoops the kids have to hop into and cones they must hop around. Other easy ideas for backyard Olympics events include running races, egg toss, obstacle courses, and shortened variations of croquet or mini golf.
Sports Superstar Gold Cards
And finally, now that you’ve got your own Olympic Games in your home or living room, you need to have some sort of medal or prize, right? We think these collectible gold trading cards are perfect. Honoring sports icons like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, they certainly fit in with the sports theme! Use the same medal for each event, or get the whole set.
