After watching a teaser about the upcoming Olympic Games on the news this morning, we decided to whip up our own Olympic Torch craft.
We also peppered some Olympics trivia questions for kids into the day’s activities because my kids are obsessed with trivia questions right now.
It’s easy, it’s quick, and it’s a great way to help build those fine motor skills.
Olympic Torch Craft for Kids
HOW TO MAKE THE OLYMPIC TORCH CRAFT
Ages: 2+ (with adult supervision)
Time: 15-20 minutes
- Manila folder
- Tissue paper in yellows and oranges
- Glue stick
- Cut out a torch shape from the manila folder. (Hint: Think of it as an ice cream cone with a swirl on top!)
- Cut small (approximately 1/2″ by 1/2″) squares of tissue paper for the flame.
- Cover the bottom portion of the torch with the silver tinfoil. It should just wrap around. There is no need to glue it unless you feel you must.
- Crinkle the small squares of tissue paper and glue them on to the flame portion of the torch. You can glue each individual piece or do as we did and cover about a 2″ section of the flame in glue and then press the crinkled tissue paper down on it.
- After the glue dries, you are ready for your own Olympic Torch relay! Have fun!
