Make an Olympic banner. Print out the printable below. Tape to a strand of yarn. Hang as a backdrop for your photo booth. 

Olympic Banner

Make custom drinking jars. Paint the rings of Mason jars in Olympic colors, green, black, yellow, red, and blue craft paint.

Make fun flags for straws. Print both sheets. Be sure that you only have one sheet of paper in your printer. Let the printer print the first copy, once the printer notifies you that there is no paper, put printer flag sheet back in and print the second side. This will allow your flags to be double sided. 
Cut out each flag. Created to slits in the middle of the flag.
The flags could also be used as cupcake flags. 

Mini Flags

Make funny glasses and a mustache for hilarious photos. Simply print out the printable below, cut out the shapes, and tape them to a wood skewer.
