The Olympics are here! I'll be honest, I've never spent much time watching the Olympics, but introducing it to my kids has been so much fun. There are many summer sports my kids can relate to. My two oldest are taking Judo and swimming lessons now, and they play tennis and golf. My seven year old has also done t-ball and soccer. I thought with today being opening ceremonies, it would be the perfect day to get a summer craft in.
This craft is so simple, and you probably don't even have to buy a thing if you keep basic art supplies on hand. If not, I highly recommend these items as they can be used for so many projects. And anything will all three of my boys little hands will remain a treasure keepsake.
For a snack to eat while watching the Olympics, here is recipe for an American Flag Snack Mix!
