Mary Lou Retton – January 24, 1968
Bio coming soon!
We used all white – and cut Olympic rings out of construction paper as a focus in the middle of our table. We’re always glad when we’re able to buy a half-cake, because we end up wasting LOTS when we buy a full one!
Activity: Olympic Gymnastics!
First, we did a craft where we used glitter glue on construction paper circles to make our own medals. When dried, they’re attached to a ribbon for our award winning performances. Note the spaghetti sauce all over the boys’ faces. That would be due to our dinner selection – Mary Lou’s favorite food being Italian!
Next, we cleared out our great room and recreated the balance beam and floor exercise. Although Mary Lou is most famous for her vault performance…this seemed like it could end badly for our three little ones!!
