I worked on this Olympic activities for kids post for a few days. It’s a fun way to encourage learning about the Olympic rings.
Do you know the significance of the Olympic rings?
The five rings represented the five participating continents of the time: Africa, Asia, America, Europe, and Oceania.
- Africa – yellow
- The Americas – red
- Asia – green
- Europe – black
- Oceania – blue
One of our favorite ways to learn is with food, so I created these Olympic activities for kids … all with food. Let’s start with homemade donuts – Olympic Rings donuts.
You can use your own bread dough, or pop out of the can dough. Your choice.
Option 1: Roll warm donut in colored sugar
Option 2: Frost donut and dip in sugar/sprinkles
For Olympic lunch, make peanut butter & jelly sandwiches (or whatever sandwiches you like) Cut in shape of rings.
Make Olympic barbells by placing a piece of cheddar cheese on the ends of pretzel sticks.
I forgot to cut holes for top of medal cookies. If you want to thread ribbon through your cookie, use a straw to cut hole.
