An Olympic Snack Table

 Have you all been enjoying the Olympics as much as I have? I keep forgetting to do other things as I am glued to gymnastics, beach volleyball, swimming and even some of less watched sports. I will pretty much any sport as long as it is during the Olympics.

 For the Opening Ceremonies, we had this awesome snack table in honor of the Olympics.
 Each colorful plate rested on a paper circle. For the blue circle we had airheads, blue gummy bears, Kool-Aid bursts, sour straws, blueberry yogurt pretzels and doughnuts.
 For black there was Oreos, chocolate covered raisins, cupcakes and licorice.
 For red there was licorice, salsa, strawberries and red apples.
 For yellow, there was pineapple, tortilla chips for the salsa and lemon pudding.
For green there were grapes, kiwi and celery.

It was the perfect match for the Opening Ceremonies and was pretty healthy too! The kids loved all the delicious finger foods and of course the treats. I think every major Olympic event deserves a snack table of this proportion. How have you been celebrating?

I am so excited that you posted this! We are still enjoying the leftovers :) This seriously made the Olympics SO much more awesome.

I think for the closing ceremonies, we might do a sandwich bar along the same lines -- miracle whip/mayo gets the blue circle, olives (blech!) and pepper for black, red peppers and tomatoes for red, bread, cheese, and mustard for yellow, and lettuce and green peppers and avocado for the green. I am definitely loving the Olympics rings as a meal planning device ;)

Oh my gosh, you guys! Cutest thing ever! I'll be stealing this idea in 4 years for sure. :)

This is SUCH a cute idea! We're all supposed to eat colorful fruits and vegetables; what a great way to get kids more excited about it!

This is making me hungry, and the very worst thing is that I have a box of dark chocolate truffles given to me last week sitting in my line of vision. I suppose I should go for the healthful snacks, huh.

I love all your Olympics stuff!!
