What fun ideas! I look forward to the Olympics and this will certainly enhance the experience :) Now to get my family to play along!
Your ideas are so cute and great. I cannot get the link/downloads to work. Is it me or is there a problem with them? Thanks for the help.

Thanks for this M! I’m hosting a very casual ‘opening ceremonies’ get together Friday and can’t wait to use a few of these.
I’m asking everyone to bring a dish representing a different country … so that should be fun!!
That sounds like the perfect night to me! I love that we can cheer on the US and learn about other cultures too. Perfect!
