Food and games for the Olympics

As everyone is wrapped up in watching the Olympics again this week, I thought I’d give you a few ideas on how to make food and drinks into fun Olympic Games of your own.

Use food coloring to dye apple rings the color of the Olympic Rings.

Bend a ski jump out of parchment (baking) paper (you might need something thicker to help it keep it’s shape). After you have your ramp, place a bowl of soup near the bottom of it and roll round crackers down your ramp, if the angle is right, the cracker should ‘jump’ Into your soup… You can choice how to rate the jump.

Cut one or more empty foil or plastic wrap rolls in half and create a luge or bobsled run, you’ll want to make it so you can place the ‘finish line’ on the rim of a mug or glass. Cover the inside of the cardboard tube with waxed paper.
Now that you’ve got your run, place the end on the rim of the drink of your choice. If you drink hot chocolate you can roll marshmallows into your cup. If you drink vodka martinis you can use olives or onions.

Now that you’ve got these ideas to start with, you’ll quickly see how many other fun food games you could do, saywax paper for a curling rink with celery as brooms for example.
Thanks for reading and have fun!
