SWIM PARTY Awards...Decorate To Celebrate Design Team Challenge

     Nothing like a little competition during the dog days of summer!  At your next pool party, why not create fun and easy to do award medals?  That way, everyone will get into the "swim of things".

     I found bags of inexpensive medals at Michaels and at my fav dollar store.  Also at Michaels I found some round label tags that would fit perfectly on the medals.  In addition to some "serious" awards, I came up with some fun ones......especially for kids, it is important to me that everyone walks away with a medal.  Even if they don't compete in the belly flop contest, how about giving them an award from "cutest swimmies".  For adults, some fun ones might be "longest time spent on the lounge chair".
     Just handwrite some awards and glue them onto the medals.  Takes minutes......and costs less than $5.00 for everything:

     Before the events, I thought the medals looked cute displayed on the tabletop and as napkin rings.  To get everyone excited for your own Swim Olympics, grab an inexpensive white board listing the day's activities and times.

    Have fun and be safe!  I have to go practice now....I'm winning the perfect dive this year!
