Olympic Rings and THIS SATURDAY!!

We are learning about the Olympics in summer school this week!  I decided to try and make a painted version of the Olympic rings using the rim of plastic cups and paint!  See our project below…

I prepared five plates of paint with the colors of the Olympic rings.  Just like when sponge painting, I placed a plastic cup in each plate of paint.  
Then they went plate by plate and stamped a circle to represent each of the rings.  They had to be very careful to overlap each color so the rings interlocked.

After we made our Olympic ring craft, we went outside for a Kindergarten version of the Olympic games… (which consisted of relay races)  Please notice the lovely olive branch hats that the kids are wearing to represent Ancient Greece. 🙂  We made these yesterday!

We practiced balancing a tennis ball on a racket.  This was our “tennis” event.

And we had to include a “track and field” event…the ring toss…

    Your Olympic theme looks like it is off to a great start!What a great theme for the summer. I just posted an Olympic glyph to make with my kiddos. I think the theme will be a big hit!

    We did some t-shirts like this for VBS a few years ago. Love the cups for the circles! Looks like fun!

    Love the olive branches! Have you ever checked out Adventure to Fitness? It is a free website that takes you all over the world and into the past. It is a 30 minute "workout". The reason I'm telling you this is one of their adventure is to the Ancient Greek Olympics. The kids get to participate in 10 different events. It ould go great with your unit.

    I was looking for some activities to do with my summer school kids. It amazes me that they didn't know anything about the Olympics.
