Recently, a mom approached me about doing a dual party. Two brothers: one seven years old, and one nine. Both boys were thrilled with the idea of sharing a party, which I thought was very sweet. One wanted sports, the other wanted robots. Hmm... I kept turning the idea over in my mind, when it hit me: “Mind and Body Olympics!” We’d have an Olympics-themed party that would not only test the physical abilities of our guests, but their mental powers as well. The boys totally dug that idea.
I pulled out all of my Olympic flags. I had flags from every nation represented along with various sports flags and decor. On the outside, it looked like your standard sports-themed party -- until you looked in the garage. There I had created a “lab”. filled with cut-out robots, sparkling stars, and tables full of crafting material. This area was tucked away, far from the playing fields. It was my surprise element in the competition.
