Here’s a fun activity to do with the kiddos. The Olympics may be over, but they will come around again (isn’t it great?!) and how fun would it be to do your own Olympics as part of this too?! So, here’s Sinea from Ducks ‘n a Row with this super fun Letter O is for Olympics art activity. Take it away, Sinea!

My eleven preschoolers are such a sweet group. As you know, no two 4 year olds are alike. Each time we do a new project, I anticipate what I will see.
- Aliyah is a perfectionist. She takes her time to get every detail right. Due to her deliberacy, we often have to wait for her to finish up.
- Caleb goes for accuracy. He wants his project to look just like mine or like the real thing, such as when we did our lion craft. He didn’t want the mane to be orange and yellow. A lion’s mane is brownish-tan and that is exactly how his looked. (Beautifully done, I might add.)
- Evan takes everything on with gusto. He had glue all over the page before he noticed that it should only go on the ringed outline of the “O”. No worries. Glue dries and he had fun.
This is the template I used.
How’d it go? After 14 weeks with my students, I have come to know them pretty well. If I gave them ALL the cereal at once, those rings would never have been made. Katie agreed. Rings first, big “O” later.
