My kids are very excited to watch the Olympics this year. They can’t wait to watch their favorite sports next month. I’m excited for the opening ceremony and watching that with the kids. We made this Olympics ring craft to get in the mood and to talk about the rings and create a little Olympic art. If you’re looking for ways to get the kids excited about the Olympics or are incorporating Olympics activities into learning and play this year, try these Olympic Games Activities for a bunch of creative ideas.
Anytime we pull out the paint, Baby Girl gets excited to make a craft and paint away. This girl loooooves to paint. These Olympic Rings were fun (and messy) to paint…just the way she likes her crafts!
Olympic Rings Craft for Kids

We started with our collection of paper tube rings (You may have just seen these used in a totally different way on our last post where we used the paper rings for Learning Sight Words. We pulled them out again for our Olympic rings.
Next came the fun part. We used our paint set
(and pulled out a container of black paint
because our set doesn’t have it). The rings were very messy to paint, but a great sensory and fine motor activity.
Olympic Ring Paint Craft
These colorful Olympic rings dried on a piece of wax paper (and looked so pretty!)
We’ve got all of the colors in there!
Once our rings dried, we glued them onto a piece of paper. This part got a little messy with the glue, but only because Big Sister wanted to pour the glue onto the rings. If you put the glue on the paper and then stick the rings into the glue, it will be a lot less sloppy than ours was. But, the glue dries clear, so no harm done!
The three dimensional Olympic Rings looked pretty neat when hanging from our dining room wall. They remind us how excited we are for the games to begin!
