2012 Olympic Games!



I am so unbelievably excited for the Olympics. I have always loved the summer games. I have fond memories of sitting in my living room watching the gymnasts of my childhood rock the world. If I could have an Olympic themed party for the next 12 days, I would do so AND be in Olympic Heaven, right up there with Zeus! Haha, get it?

Since it's not possible for me to host the longest party ever, I'll have to settle for making some fun Olympic-themed treats. Today, I made some FANCY gold medals to hand out this weekend while floating. 

I used the following two ingredients: Oreos (the golden ones!) & Fruit by the Foot (feet, plural)


 What's one thing I did not do while constructing my gold medals? Read the directions. Ugh, I have a little freshening up to do before school begins on the 21st.  Yes, there's a giant STOP sign. Did I STOP?

 Nope.


Now my oreos are going to get stale WAY TOO QUICKLY! Arg! #firstworldproblems


I went ahead and followed the directions and opened the package the appropriate way. Now my Oreos are exposed to the world in two different ways. So many Oreo problems, so little time.


I unscrewed the Oreos. I broke the 'feet in half and fashioned lanyard to fit with the Oreo/gold medal. I'm sure Michael Phelps would weep receiving one of these bad boys. 


This Olympic treat is so simple an infant could complete it. Okay, maybe not an infant. How about a toddler? 


Tonight, I'm going to attempt to make sugar cookies to resemble the Olympic rings. Wish me luck!

  1. Love, love , love the Olympics and love this post! I am hoping some of my students actually watch them and I am considering doing some Olympic themed back to school stuff...this treat will fit in perfectly!! 4 Years ago for the Opening Ceremonies in Beijing I made my family a yummy chinese themed dinner. Tomorrow night I am making (or attempting to) Bangers and Mash...how hard can sausages and potatoes be. lol!
