The 2014 Winter
Olympics is just around the corner. Get ready with these fun, easy craft
projects for the whole family.
Paper Plate Olympic Rings
Take five paper plates and cut out a circle in the middle to make a ring shape. Color one each blue, yellow, black, green, and red. Arrange them in the Olympic ring shape and use some tape or a stapler to attach them to each other. Hang up your rings for an easy Olympic decoration.
Tin Foil Silver Medals
Cut a 3-inch circle out of cardboard – an empty cereal box will work well. Use a cup to trace the circle shape. Cover the cardboard circle with tin foil to make it silver. Use a toothpick to draw (indent) decoration onto your medal. You can draw the Olympic rings or a number two or stars. Attach some thick ribbon with tape or glue to finish your medal so you can wear it.
Trace your child’s handprint three times, once on red, once on yellow, and once on orange construction paper. Cut out the handprints and attach them to the inside of a cardboard toilet paper tube so most of the hand and fingers stick out. The handprint cutouts make the flames.
