Olympic Party

The London Olympics are on everyone's mind these days, so consider throwing an Olympic party of your own. For an international take on the traditional backyard games, partygoers can be divided into teams based on the colors of the Olympic rings and compete in classic potato sack races, a ladder run (jumping through the rungs of a wooden ladder laid flat on the ground), water balloon races, rope swings over an inflatable kiddie pool, etc. Conclude the races with an award ceremony where everyone receives a medal, and then gather the teams together for a meal of international flavors.
