How Do You Catch Olympic Fever?

Posted by   + Show Post

Watching the Olympics together has the potential to be a great family bonding experience. But with the celebrity culture surrounding some sports today, it's hard to get kids excited about unknown athletes and unusual sports. How do you share your Olympic spirit with your kids?

I've been watching, they watched the opening ceremony with me, I keep talking about what I've seen so far and they've come in and watched some with me.

Right now the family is having a Beatles party with dh and friends, I put out some snacks that dd and dh picked up earlier, she picked out an Abbey Road t-shirt, too, can't compete with that, my daughter has been on a non-stop Beatles kick.

That moment makes me cry. I am so sensitive, when I hear our anthem play I just can't help it I well up with pride like they are my child. :)

I haven't.  I'm not a sports fan.  :/

I've had the events on every day since the opening ceremony, the kids have been coming through and checking out some stuff they've never watched before and getting interested the same way I am.

Why take the time to let the world know "it's not your thing" or that you "can't get into it"? Why not just let those with relevant answers respond. That way we all don't have to read through your drivel to see actual answers.

Sounds like lots of us don't watch...

DH and I watch regularly, but our kids only watch sometimes. I do think it is important for kids to see other young people working hard for a goal and how they deal with winning and losing.

We don't really watch
