The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio starts tonight, and despite all the politics around Russia and the Zika virus scare, we are still pretty excited. This tradition has been around since at least 776 BC (practically the Dinosaur era) and this year will see 28 different sports played with over 10,000 participants.
So why not make a party of it? Gather your friends, bake some goodies, and choose a favorite athlete, team, or country to cheer for!
Here are some ideas to get you started:
- You can't go wrong with Olympic Medal Cookies
- Are you a parent? Why not have an Olympics-themed party?
- Brazilian themed food and drinks are a must, so why not try a thirst quenching Caipirinhas?
- Want to train like an Olympian? US gymnast Gabby Douglas shares her training playlist. (Need a giggle? Have a listen to some official themes songs of Olympics past)
