Preschool Winter Olympics

Preschool Winter Olympics



The 2018 Winter Olympics are here!

This is our Preschool Winter Olympics. Our preschoolers are having a great time competing and winning silver and gold medals.

Let The Games Begin!

Preschool Winter Olympics      Our torch is just a paper towel tube covered in foil and stuffed with orange and yellow tissue paper.

Preschool Winter Olympics  Simplest art project ever! Five paper towel tubes in 5 plates of paint. Red, yellow, blue, black and green. Let the kids dip and print!


  Pre cut the center of paper plates away, so you have just the outer ring left. Set up five stations where each kid paints a ring of each of the 5 Olympic Ring colors. When they’re dry cut each one so that you can inter lock them like the actual Olympic Rings.

Figure Skateing

Preschool Figure Skatin  Little feet wrapped in waxed paper slide across  carpet like ice.

  Rubber bands hold the waxed paper loosely around their ankles.

Luge

Preschool Winter Olympics   This is a common scooter rolling on a very old slide from a climber maybe as old as the 70’s lol. We set it up on a huge wedge mat. Not many schools will have just this combination of items to replicate this. Our Olympians love this so much I had to share!

Ice Hockey

Preschool Winter Olympics   Indoor “ice” hockey. Our kids are 3-4 so we play one-on-one hockey. Too many sticks becomes dangerous. This year we’ll remember the waxed paper “skates”.


Bring Home The Gold (or silver)

  Cut a 3-4 inch circle.

  Wrap the circle in foil. I was unable to find gold foil so we have silver medalists this year.

  Add red, white, and blue crape paper.

Preschool Winter Olympics  Just tape the ribbon onto the back. They’re not real! lol

Preschool Winter Olympics   There you have it.

  We’re planning on trying this snack this year!
