How many of you have loved watching the Olympics as much as me? It has been so fun and so incredible to watch these extremely talented people compete. I’m not much of a t.v. watcher so it has been on a lot more than usual…I wanted my 3 year old to understand, or at least try to understand, the Olympics and why I was watching it. Not sure if she gets it still, but she thinks the medals are pretty neat. I showed her a picture of the Olympic Rings and told her we were going to paint them. It’s not often that I get a response like this, “You’re great Mom!” How cute is that? She loves to paint and she had never painted with toilet paper rolls, so she thought that was pretty cool.
While your kids are stamping explain to them what the Olympic rings stand for and what the colors represent, click here for some information on that.
- blue, black, green, red, and yellow paint
- toilet paper rolls
It was pretty simple. We just followed the pattern and colors of the Olympic Rings. By using both sides of the toilet paper roll, we only needed 3.
My daughter was having so much fun doing it that I couldn’t get a picture before she started stamping more circles. She had a great time doing it. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the Olympics this week!
