olympic party 2012

We had a great afternoon celebrating the Olympics with a few friends!

 This big guy and I painted the rings and talked about what they represent.  There is a song he sings at school about continents I must learn!  We all made our own flags. I used a bunch of scrap material that was nice and heavy.  Cups worked perfectly as ring stamps.  This was a great activity-one of our Olympians was only 2 and he LOVED making a his own flag with Mommy!
 My girlfriend who arrived helped me put the medals together.  A little hot glue, ribbons, chocolate coins and a paper circle for a medal.  All supplies I had in my stash! The kids really loved these and they were so easy to make.  Big brother didn't take his off even when we went out for supper a few hours later. He ate his medal for dessert.

 Thank you Playmobil!  These Olympic figures are wonderful for all ages and great deal at less than five bucks.  Bonus-the swimmers really float!  I picked up 2 swimmers and 2 bikers so we could have races.  We have used the pool, a baking dish and the hot tub.  We watched diving before bed tonight so I assume the figures will be diving tomorrow...guess I will be making a diving board after I post this!  I look forward to pulling these out again each year for the Olympics.

 Everyone made a necklace with Olympic ring coloured beads.  Great fine motor skills Olympians!
