Part of the reason I chose the Olympic theme, was so we could play fun games at the party. We planned several fun, kids friendly games and the kids had a blast! There were a few melt-downs (mostly my sons!) but overall it was a fun way to keep the kids busy at the party.
Each kid got to throw tennis balls at the wrapped boxes. I should have put a weight in the bottom of each box, because they kept tipping over. we had to use tape to keep them up.
I cut a paper baton for each kid, with their name on it.
We made the ring posts with a basket and rolled up paper. The rings are our pool diving rings.
We had the kids hit a balloon with wooden chopsticks into a goal.

Very nice party! I am contemplating on a 70s-themed 5th birthday party for my son. I’m actually excited on getting him some funky kids clothes.

That is a really fun game! I’m sure those kids really enjoyed playing with each other. I will try to buy sporty baby clothing because my daughter can now walk but sometimes I still need to carry her.

The kids should be wearing the appropriate attire for that event. It seems like all of them really participated in that activity and they look happy.
Leslie Crawford says
That can be a good game for my baby shower party. For sure all the kids who will attend the party will definitely enjoy that.

It is evident on the kid’s faces how much they are having fun. For my son’s 7th birthday party, I want outdoor fun activities for children. So I should probably advise them to just wear casual clothes and nothing too fancy.

Seems like the kids had oodles of fun. Although the aftercare might seem to be a bit of a burden from the setting, to the kid clothes, and to the mess in the tables, seeing their unadulterated happiness makes you forget all of those things.
