Let’s Play: Olympic Crafts

Olympic Rings

What you need:
– White card
– A bowl
– A slightly smaller bowl
– Olympic coloured paints

What you need to do:
– Draw round the larger bowl on the white card to make the outside of the circle.  Then draw round the smaller bowl to make the inside part of the circle.

– Let your toddler paint the rings before cutting out – this means they can go out of the lines as much as they need to and it doesn’t matter!

– Cut out the rings.  

– In order to link the rings you will need to cut some of them and then stick them back together.  I started with the blue ring which I left intact.  I snipped the yellow, fed it through the blue ring and then glued it back together.  I then repeated this for the remaining rings.

Olympic Torch

What you need:
– White card
– Tinfoil
– Orange, red and yellow tissue paper
– Plastic or paper cup

What you need to do:
– Roll the white card up and stick to form a cone shape.

– Wrap the cone in tin foil.

– Tear the tissue paper into strips and stick in your plastic/paper cup.

– Place the cup in the top of the cone and let your little winner pose!

Olympic Hurdles

What you need:
Toilet paper rolls

What you need to do:
– Paint your toilet paper rolls.

– When dry stick together to form hurdle shapes.

– Jump away!

We hope you have lots of fun with these Olympic Craft ideas.
