Olympic Torch Fun

The Olympics are here!  I love the Olympics.  We had fun at our house getting ready for them this week with the help of lots of neat ideas I found on Pinterest.

First, our daughter made a torch picture complete with Olympic rings and medals.  We used foil and tissue paper for the torch itself, traced her hand and arm on construction paper, and wrapped the paper fingers around the torch.  She glued on rings I had punched out of construction paper.  I thought we were done, but then she added medal stickers she found in my old box of Olympics “teacher stuff.”

But we didn’t stop there!  Along with out regular cookout food for dinner last night we had Cheetos in ice cream cones to look like torches.  How simple – yet cute – is that??

And for dessert we had still more torches.  We made cupcakes in ice cream cones and topped them with yellow and orange frosting.  Admittedly not my most beautiful culinary creations ever, but still very fun.

As I said, I really love the Olympics.  You might even go so far as to say that I carry a torch for the Olympics!  Ha ha.  Go USA!
