Our Olympic Week

In honour of the Olympic Torch coming to our little town I decided we would have a week full of Games related crafts.  Unfortunately Meg and Eli didn't get to see the torch as it was during working hours but as the route went straight passed my office I was able to pop down and get a front row seat :)

 So first, to introduce Meg to the concept we made our own rings.  I think the best part for Meg was getting to use so many different coloured paints all at once! 

All cutting was done by me (the *ahem* responsible adult!) but Meg did all the painting herself.  I think she did a good job!

I'm not going to lie, it was a bit tricky for me to work out how all the rings connected together but I got there in the end!!

Next we decided to make a torch.  I ended up doing most of the work on the torch whilst Meg prepared her 'running strip' of cushions.  

Meg was particularly good at her winner's pose!

We ended our week by using up some of the fifty or so toilet roll tubes we now have and making hurdles.  

 So there you have it, our week of Olympic fun.  If you have any other suggestions of Games related crafts we could do let me know! 


  1. arh, that is so cute, we had the torch down here in devon about a month ago. also made torches and flags to wave ! was great fun :o)

    1. We've really got into the spirit of it now, actually looking forward to it all starting now!

  2. We are having an olympic party with our friends - cant wait to do some races with them. But how competitive will the Mums race be???? Torch was by us yesterday but thought me and 3 kids in crowds was just too much to cope with!


I love to hear from people who've taken the time to read - do leave a comment :)
