Home Olympics (from a Young Leader at 7th Hereford)

Young people devise and encourage their whole family to participate in their own 2020 Olympics to replace this year’s postponed event.

This should take place in the garden using items they have around their home.

Different family members should choose a country and the Young People should make a flag/badge for each participant to wear along with medals. A score card could be made to track the scores.

Examples of Olympic events to include:-

  • Javelin – Throw a drinking straw as far as you can.
  • Shotput – Ball of newspaper taped up and thrown from shoulder.
  • Hurdles – Lay out a course of cardboard boxes to leap over.
  • Track – Hopping race with feet together across the lawn.
  • Long Jump – Jump from standing still (no run up) as far as you can.
  • Archery – wet tissue paper balls fired with an elastic band onto a target chalked on the garden wall.
  • Golf – Mini golf using a broom/stick and small ball tapped toward a tin mug/plastic beaker on its side in as few shots as possible.
  • Table Tennis or Badminton if they already own these.
