Olympic Rings Picture
Prepare for the Olympics by helping your child create a colorful print inspired by the Games' iconic symbol, the Olympic rings. This famous symbol is comprised of five interlocking rings that represent the five continents (with North and South America counted as one continent). Created in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic movement, the Olympic rings are a celebrated symbol of athletic prowess and global community.
This activity encourages your child to explore the history of the Olympic Games in ancient and modern times as well as important art and design concepts such as shape, color, and composition. As she works, your child will gain insight into the printmaking process and learn to think creatively.
