I have so many memories of watching the Olympics with my family during the summer. The opening and closing ceremony was always a big family affair. We would always make fun snacks or order pizza to watch the grand show. If you like to do fun family nights, here are some ideas to create an Olympic themed Family fun night at home. You can do this on the day of the opening ceremony too!
