Having Your Own Olympics

With the Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympic Games being tomorrow, all I have had is the Games on my mind. I absolutely love watching the Olympics. All of the events can be exciting, but my two favorite are swimming and gymnastics. I took gymnastics when I was younger and every little gymnast dreams of being in the Olympics.

It was always fun to be on the equipment and pretend to be in the Olympics and that the whole world was watching. If you or your kids find yourself caught up in the Games and want to pretend to be some of the world's best athletes then just head to your local playground! You will be surprised at what you can find to have your own Olympic events.

One great item is the Parallel Bars. Not only are they an actual event in the Olympic Games, but they are great for exercise! Building upper body strength is a great benefit of using the parallel bars.

The Triple Horizontal Bars are also perfect for hosting your own Olympic events. They can be considered a modified version of the high bar in the men's gymnastics events.

But don't limit yourself to just modified events! Create your own!
