Supplies for Olympic Flag Craft


  1. Start by adding the blue, yellow, black, green and red paint to paper plates.
  2. Next, dip the cup or small bowl into each color to create the rings of the Olympic flag on the white cardstock. Allow it to dry.
  3. Cut a 16 inch strip from the recycled cardboard to create the flag pole.
  4. Use the foam brush to apply grey paint to the cardboard strip. Allow it to dry.
  5. Finally, glue the white paper with the Olympic Rings to the grey strip to complete the flag. Now it’s time to celebrate!

This was such a fun and easy craft to make to celebrate the Olympics. You can also use this activity to help young kids work on color recognition and counting. They will be able to work on their fine motor skills as well.

Which Olympic sport are you looking forward to watching? I’m all about the track & field events but I also enjoy watching gymnastics, swimming and badminton.
