Arts & Crafts Thursday: Olympic Rings
My son has been very in to the Olympics. This has been a bit of a surprise to me but I have to say I have loved it. It turns out that Olympic viewing can be a wonderful 3 meter springboard event for learning. My son and I discuss all things patriotic as well as learn about other sports, sportsmanship, and various countries. That's why I was thrilled to come across an idea to paint the Olympic rings. As you know, paint "manipulation" is always a favorite around here and given the topic this was a winner.
- paint: red, yellow, green, blue, black
- paper cups
Start by putting one of each paint color in to a bowl.
Take 1 cup and place it upside down in each bowl.
Roll the top of the cup around in the paint to cover, then stamp.
Keep stamping all of the different colors until you have as many beautiful Olympic rings as you want!
Simple, simple, simple! Yet wonderful entertainment to keep your kids in an Olympic state of mind. I'll admit, I even did one, too.
Next Thursday, no more Olympics. I'll have one very sad child but luckily I am feeling "Citius, Altius, Fortius." So I'll make it.
