Anyone who uses our site or reads the blog knows that we love holidays and seasonal events, and the Winter Olympics are no exception! We’ve been in training to do our Winter Olympics crafts for weeks; we’ve strengthened our tissue paper technique, worked on our glue stick form, and drilled our knowledge of glitter glue. We’re proud to be Winter Olympics craft champions, and we’d like to invite you to join us in creating beautiful, handmade crafts that celebrate the biyearly event. Check out some of our favorite Winter Olympics crafts below.
During the opening ceremonies, it just feels good to have a handmade Olympic torch in your hand as you watch the event. This one is simple enough to make, so everyone in your family can have their own torch in a matter of minutes.
Everyone has their own favorite Winter Olympics event, but can you describe why your favorite sport is so great? This Olympic writing activity gets your child to use adjectives and nouns to describe their Olympic event of choice, all while watching the games! When the event is over, we like to turn our descriptions into paragraphs, and make miniature Olympics books that contain the whole family’s favorite sports.
Olympic Cookie Rings
This extremely delicious and exceptionally simple dessert is a tribute to the symbol of the Olympic games: the five rings. Make a batch of Olympic cookie rings to nosh on during the closing ceremonies this year.
In addition to these Winter Olympics crafts, we’ll also be making our way through the crafts, games, and activities in the Winter Olympics Activity Book, which includes tutorials on painting with Olympic rings, making pipe cleaner athletes, and using international greetings.
We’ll see you at the games!
