Olympics Art Activities

Olympic Torches
Give children paper towel rolls, tissue paper or streamers (red, yellow, and orange), paint, and glue or tape. Let children use the materials to create their own torch.

Paint Olympic Rings
Have 5 paper plates with each color of paint in the Olympic rings (red, green, black, blue, and yellow). Have children dip the open end of a plastic cup into each color of pain paint, then print the paint ring on a piece of white paper in the same formation as the Olympic rings.

Tissue Paper Mural
Cut out 5 large cardboard rings. Have children glue appropriate colored tissue paper to each ring. When dry, interlock the rings and hang on the wall.
