Cheer for your favorite athletes at the 2022 Winter Games and throw a gold medal-worthy Olympics party filled with themed food, fun games, and spirited decorations.

Make Olympic Decorations

Create party decorations like banners, flags, and streamers to fit the Olympic theme. Let kids go wild with poster boards, markers, stickers, and glitter (if you’re brave). You can even make your own Olympic torch with this tutorial from Fun Family Crafts.

Sip Olympic-Themed Drinks

As you cheer on Team USA, enjoy a red, white, and blue drink to show your team spirit. Layered bomb pop shots are a fun choice for adults, and kids will love a red, white, and blueberry milkshake.

Have An Opening Ceremony

The fanfare of the Olympics opening ceremony is always a stunning and celebrated part of the games. Create your own opening ceremony to kick off your Olympics party complete with banners, music, flags, and competitor intros.

Serve Winter Olympics Snacks

It’s not really a party without food. To celebrate the Winter Games, make snowflake-shaped cookies, arrange a fruit platter with an Olympic ring theme, or make Olympic ring donuts for party guests to snack on.

Set Up Your Own Games

What better way is there to celebrate Olympic athletes than with your own games at home? Set up an Olympic-style obstacle course for your kids to enjoy and compete for gold!

Create Medals To Award

Use ribbon, cardboard circles, and some paint to create your own gold, silver, and bronze medals with your kids. Award them to the winners of your own games or simply enjoy making the craft and talking about the significance of the real Olympic medals.

Keep Score

Celebrate The Olympic Spirit

Read books about the Olympics together with your kids or pick a competing country for everyone to learn about during the party. These fun activities can help get everyone in the mood for the Winter Games.

Relive Past Olympic Moments

Watching the 2022 games at your party is a no-brainer, but during commercials, you can play old Olympic clips from YouTube. Reminisce about Shaun White’s gold medal halfpipe from 2010 or watch Surya Bonaly’s iconic (yet illegal) backflip from 1998.

Enjoy Olympic Desserts

Make a patriotic dessert to show your Team USA spirit, top mini desserts with Olympic rings (like this recipe from Inside Bru Crew Life), or bake a batch of gold medal cookies to wrap up your celebration in the sweetest way.
