February HOA Events: Winter Olympics Activities in the Clubhouse

What better way to take full advantage of the current cold snap than to bundle your residents up in the clubhouse for Winter Olympics activities? From February 9 to February 25, the world’s best athletes will be competing in Pyeongchang, South Korea — and it’s the perfect time to hold games of your own! Below, our Lifestyle Managers have compiled some of their favorite ideas for making the most of the Winter Olympics in your community Association.

Clubhouse Decorations

Start the festivities off right with clubhouse decorations that set the scene of the Winter games. And remember, this is the perfect time to deck out your clubhouse with wintertime decorations to distinguish from the Summer Olympics! You can find easy printables online, like these country flags from around the world to hang from the clubhouse ceiling, or you can create the decorations yourself with a little design background. We’ve gathered some of our favorite inspiration to transform your clubhouse into the perfect venue for watching the 2018 Winter Olympics.

When planning your options for the best food choices for an Olympics-themed party, think of choices that can double as decorations for your tablescape. Besides wintertime clubhouse classics like hot chocolate and warm dips, you can impress your residents with snacks that look like iconic Olympics elements. These snacks don’t have to be complicated to look professional!

Finally to the main event: the games! You can make each of these activities as competitive or casual as you’d like to, and you can always adjust for the age of the children in your community. And our Lifestyle Managers know that no games would be complete without medals for the winners! You can even make another activity out of it and craft your own.
