Well I think we are ready for the Opening Ceremonies for tonight. Total prep time was maybe 2 hours and the cost as under $30!! I google imaged and went through Pinterest and I found some great ideas, (maybe for Rio 2016?) but for now my goal was simple.
Geography & Olympic Awareness.
I found this map for $ 6 at Utah Idaho Supply Store. Where I picked up some star stickers. To show the sports I printed off the Olympic Pictograms, $10 at FedexOffice.com.
The stickers are put on each participating country. The chain is for the # of days of the Olympics ( I have not been able to break the chain . . . yet.
Tonight, while watching the Opening Cerimonies we will be enjoying ice cream and making some Olympic Medals. I also printed off some coloring sheets, which will color while watching games.
I am still trying to figure out if we track metals by printing flags and putting stickers for each metal on the flag, or if I will print the athelete picture and put that on each event, since there is a delay I can have the winners ready to put on. . . .
Oh yes she is excited!!
