It’s time for another checkIN and checkOUT Friday over here at the Preserves Project. This week I’m linking to all things Summer Olympics! The opening ceremonies are tonight! I can’t wait to see what Rio has in store…I’m sure it will be super bright, fun and exciting.
I will be tuning in while packing up for vacation because we leave on Saturday morning for a week at the lake. I. can’t. wait. So it will be a little quiet around here next week. But when I get back, I’ll be in full back to school mode. Recipes and projects to make the transition back to routines and schedules and lunch packing and homework a litttle more tolerable!
Ok, so here are some fun ideas to help get your family hyped up for the 2016 Summer Olympics…enjoy!
checkOUT: Brazilian Ham and Cheese Rolls
Olivia over at Olivia’s Cuisine shares the most delicious Brazilian Ham and Cheese rolls over on her site. They look easy and delicious and kid-friendly! Perfect to snack on during the opening ceremonies!
checkOUT: Brazilian Lemonade
To go along with your ham & cheese rolls, why not try a Brazilian Lemonade? Made with limes (no lemons???) and sweetened condensed milk. It looks frothy and delicious! Alyssa shares the details over at The Recipe Critic!
checkOUT: Olympic Ring Cookies
For dessert, head over and check out these cute and simple cookies by Becky at Love to Be in the Kitchen. She uses M & Ms to represent the Olympic rings. This is a recipe that you could do with the kids. Let them frost the cookies, place the “rings” on top and then devour!
checkOUT: Olympic Word Search
What to do during the commercials? Compete in a race to find the words fastest with this Summer Olympics word search! It’s a fun game and it serves as a reminder of all the cool sports that are played during the summer games. Get the free printable at education.com!
checkOUT: Try The World
I can’t miss the opportunity to link back to the fun post I shared earlier this week. The kids and I had the chance to sample some Brazilian treats and learn a little about the country’s culture when we received the Try The World Brazil Box. What a fun experience to get us amped up for the Olympics!
Try The World offers you the opportunity to taste the flavors of a country without leaving home with their food subscription box service. And Preserves Project readers can recieve 15% off using CODE: PRESERVES – give it a try, you’ll love it!
Well I hope you all enjoy your evening watching the Olympics opening ceremonies. Go USA! If you happen to try any of these treats, please snap a pic and share with me on Instagram with #checkincheckoutfriday!
Just a reminder, I collect all the recipes, ideas and products I mention in my checkIN & checkOUT posts each week on a Pinterest Board for easy reference…follow it here!
