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...


And for an exciting event: this Saturday I am taking part in a Blog Swap/ Hop event!  Several bloggers are guest blogging for each other.  Check back on Saturday to see who my special guest blogger will be!  I am so excited to have her, she is one of my favorites!!!  ;)  Click on the image below to see some of the bloggers that are participating!
