    archery field sports like javelin hammer shot put ( not with the real thing obviously but with something safer)
    making a flag and creating an opening ceremony
    football, tennis rowing on land

    have a look at a list of sports that are in the olympics
    Perhaps you can include winter olympic sports too if youneed more ideas

    As well as the races, we're planning a wide game - based around the 5 continents/world areas that take part in the Olympics - as I read somewhere the Olympic rings are meant to represent this.
    We've also planned an Opening Ceremony with each patrol/tent making up their own country, flag and national anthem.
    PM me if you're interested and I could send you the documents.

    we have allocated groups their country beforehand so they can come with a song or poem for our opening ceremony, we are making mobiles with union jack underneath, gold plate from poundland, coloured in, and cut into a spiral; with coloured circles, an olympic torch hanging from the middle and a mascot on. they look cool!!! we are doing paralympics and hoping to borrow some wheelchairs and do some activities with weighted bells, sounds, and wheelchair sport will be good for the girls to experience.
