Olympic Rings Craft Project

The Summer games are around the corner and our family is super excited to watch elite athletes compete for the gold. When I was a teacher and when my own boys were younger, we would host our own playground and backyard Olympic events. We also made Olympic art, like this fun Olympic Rings Craft Project!

Hope you didn’t miss our excellent kids’ lesson about the history of the Olympics!

Paper Ring Project Supplies:

  • White, blue, black, red, yellow, and green construction paper.
  • School glue.
  • A cup or small bowl to trace.

The Olympic Rings we see now were designed by the Founder of the International Olympic Committee in 1914, and was first used in the Olympic Games in Antwerp, Belgium in 1920. The five colored rings are representative of the five continents. The colors also represented the colors of every country competing in the games at that time.

Let’s get started on this DIY Olympic Ring Craft Project! This is a great activity for kids of all ages. And, it’s a fun and educational way to develop fine motor skills.

First, trace five interlaced circles onto the white sheet of paper. 

Next, tear small pieces of each of the five colors of paper. 

Now, begin to glue the torn pieces of paper around the traced circles on the white sheet of paper. 

Start with the blue circle on the top, then black, and red. Next, glue the yellow paper onto the circle that interlaces the blue and black circles. Finally, glue the green paper to the remaining circle.
