I sat down with the Happy Buddy yesterday to try and explain what the Olympics are and halfway through my lengthy explanation of athletes, various sports, medals, etc., the Happy Buddy said, “Mommy, could you please stop talking? Can we go play with my cars?”
Here are some great Olympic-themed crafts that your Happy Buddies will love if you had a better time explaining to them what the Olympics are than me.
Grab some paper plates and some paint and you can create a neat Olympic Rings decoration for your Happy Home!
Check out Learn Create Love for the how-to.
When I saw this idea early this morning, I literally dove into our bathroom trash can and fished out all of our toilet paper rolls to make this great Olympic Rings Craft from The Mother Huddle.
The Happy Buddy had so much fun stamping the colored toilet paper roll rings all over the page.
Whip up a batch of easy M&M Olympic Ring Cupcakes from Parents.
The Idea Room has terrific directions to make a simple Paper Towel Roll Olympic Torch for your Happy Buddies to parade around the house.
Metallic gold paint, glitter, and patriotic ribbon gives you the coolest Olympic Medals from HERE to award your little Olympians for their Olympic-crafting efforts.
Do a few of these crafts every couple of days and your Happy Buddies will be ramped up for the games to begin at the end of July!
Happy Olympic Craft-ing!
