Winter Olympics Games
Who says you have to be out in the snow and the ice to take part in the Winter Olympics! We've got 3 original board games here, designed specially for fun during the Winter Olympics but of course fun at any time for winter sports enthusiasts. Get curling, figure skating and speed skating with our printable games below.
The bobsled, or bobsleigh, has got to be one of the most exciting events at the Winter Olympics, and many children will have enjoyed the tale of the Jamaican bobsled team in the Disney film Cool Runnings! We decided to have a go at making our own with supplies from the junk cupboard.
Grab a dice, turn the printer on and discover how good you are at curling - board game style! Kids will be playing against a partner and scoring points, so there is some adding practice involved too. Please note - we've taken liberties with the rules of curling! The game is for 2 players.
This homemade curling game is a great idea for a winter's afternoon or to accompany the Winter Olympics. We love crafts that you can enjoy playing with afterwards as they tick all sorts of boxes!
This game is perfect for enthusiastic ice-skaters, for kids who love to watch ice skating shows, and of course for playing during the Winter Olympics. But actually, it's strategic, exciting and fun, so you don't need an excuse to play it!
The kids may not be able to take part in the real Winter Olympics, but they can have some fun with our Winter Olympics board games! Here's a slalom game which captures all the fun and excitement of the real event. Play with 2-4 players.
This exciting board game is based on the speed skating event we enjoy during the Winter Olympics, which of course is fast and furious - and often looks dangerous! It can be played with 2-4 players.
Print our winter sports dominoes and play just like normal dominoes. Can you recognise all the different winter sports? For extra durability, you could back them onto some card or craft foam, or laminate them.
