At Little ARTventurers we did an Olympic theme a few weeks ago when the Olympic torch passed through Sunderland and it was great fun! We made Olympic torches, our own winners medals, GB flags to wave and made our own version of the Olympic rings with paint and cookie cutters!
The Olympic torches were especially popular! I had pre cut some black torch shapes and also had some yellow flame shaped pieces of card (left over from Bonfire night!). Other than that the kids used their own creative skills -snipping , cutting, scrunching, tearing pieces of tissue paper, cellophane and other remnants and using paint too to create their very fiery torches!
Any activity involving paint is a sure winner and the cookie cutter Olympic ring paintings were lots of fun!
I love any sort of printing activity like this one - great for developing motor skills, fab for introducing shapes, colours and colour mixing and you can easily adapt it to any theme. We did some great cookie cutter prints for St Paddy's day too! You can also introduce a bit of sparkle by printing with PVA glue and sprinkling glitter over it :)
The medals and flags also looked great and super colourful - we used crepe paper streamers to hang our medals from for obvious safety reasons!
Hopefully these ideas might provide you with inspiration for some activities with your own little ARTventurers - and enjoy the Olympics!
