We’ve found several ways to incorporate the Olympic Rings in our week. And now Iddo is pointing out the Olympic circles every time she sees them.
Monday afternoon we pulled out the paint and the kids all did an Olympic Rings art project. We were even able to do a 3-year-old version and a 1-year-old version. Iddo used a small cup to stamp circles on her paper with the Olympic colors. For Shimri and Shimei I put tiny blobs of paint on the paper in the positions of the rings and they got to finger paint them around. I liked the results from both versions.
I’ve been able to convince Iddo to let me try different things with her hair. When we use elastics they’re called “fancies” in our house. Friday she let me do Olympic circles fancies, as long as we pretend that purple is black because, as she pointed out, we don’t have any black fancies.
And for dinner Friday night we had Olympic Rings dips.
Blue – blue colored ranch dressing
Black – chocolate sauce
Red – salsa
Yellow – creamy lemon fruit dip
Green – guacamolé
We dipped apples, strawberries, grapes, carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, tortilla chips, and tiny sugar cookies.
Iddo said it best after dinner Friday, “I am very Olympic today.”
