Many of our activities have an sporty theme as we look forward to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Why not try new activities such as badminton, distance Olympic swim and Olympic t-shirt designing? They'll all get you in the mood for when the 'greatest show on earth' arrives in the UK this summer.
