I printed her some colouring pages:
She coloured and coloured and coloured. She used her new colour pencils we've just got her: Maped Duo colours
She loved this set of pencils as gold and silver colours are included too.
We talked about the Rio symbol of three people holding hands and dancing, the meaning of the Olympic rings (they represent the five continents where the sportsmen and sportswomen come from) and also mentioned they receive medals if they come first, second or third place. She was fascinated by the medals.
So on the spot I decided to make medals for her. I cut 3 circles out of cardboard. We painted one gold, we covered the other with kitchen foil (i.e. silver medal) and the last one E. coloured brown to reach a bronze-like colour.
We pulled out an orange ribbon from Mommy's leftover ribbon box and we fixed it cut in three pieces on the back of the medals with double-sided sticky tape.
As for the Olympic rings we used paper plates. I cut out the middle and we painted them 5 different colours: blue, black, red, yellow and green.
Some Cello tape and it was on display.
Little preparation and a great outcome.
