Friendly Competition With Christmas Olympics

Christmas is a time for love, food, and parties full of vigorous competition! We love parties that have fun games involved and we just can’t stop making more! This is how the Christmas Olympics were born. {perfect for those Olympic years! We’re getting you ready!} There are 4 events that will have you and your guests rushing to get in the holiday mood. And yes, we have medals and laurels… ok, holly boughs, to make it all official. Get ready to go faster. Higher. Stronger.

Our Christmas Olympics were made possible by the fabulously creative Carisa of Messes to Memories, she is helping make your party a hit with her adorable prints.

Christmas Olympic Invite

Christmas Olympics Invite and Medals

We love the invite with the clever nod to the Olympic rings, but to make it the Christmas Olympics, we have 5 adorable wreaths! Print out however many you need and send those off! For those of you more of a text-y people, I love to print one, fill it out, and then snap a picture to send off to my guests.

Organization for the Christmas Olympics

Christmas Olympics Hostess Prep and Instructions

We also have a page with some hostess notes to help you get ready and organized. There are 4 different events, so we have a few notes on how to make each event run smoothly.

Christmas Olympics Score Cards

The night of your Christmas Olympics make sure to have a scorecard for each individual and some instructions. Each Christmas competition will be judged in 3 areas: Creativity, Neatness, and Theme. Their overall score will be out of 15. You can rotate who competes and who judges {unlike the actual Olympics ;P} The events are Present Wrapping, Tree Trimming, Gingerbread Decorating, and Card-Making.

Card Making in the Christmas Olympics

We like to have 1 couple judge half of the guests, then switch to a second couple. Everyone rotates through playing judge as we move through the competitions.

Christmas Olympic Scoring and Awards

Christmas Olympics Score Cards

Our Christmas Olympics wouldn’t be complete without the classic Olympic scorecards. We attach them to popsicle sticks and once we decide on a final score, it is upheld! {Yes, we know some of you can’t handle but give half points, so we included one of those as well}. Just make sure that you do the math correctly and they don’t score above a 15 :p

Christmas Olympics Winners Circle

At the end of each event, or the end of the night, award your Christmas Olympians! There are 3 different colors of medals, you can decide which order the red and blue fall, but gold is pretty obvious. And if you want a real classic Christmas Olympic look, get some holly crowns ready! We have printable ones that can be bobby pinned into hair, or if you actually have holly {fake or real} on hand, use that to make your Christmas Olympics extra. Or try out the done-for-you ones on Amazon!
