Two years ago, we had an awesome time celebrating the Summer Olympics. We had all sorts of fun and I even offered a FREE Olympic eBook with several activities, crafts, and snacks (which you can still get for free, by the way). This year the Olympics will come at a time when we will most likely have a newborn in our house, so I’m not sure how many activities we will do as I will most definitely be exhausted and sleep-deprived. :) We’re starting a little early, just to make sure we get in some Olympic fun! This fun Olympic Ice Skating activity was inspired by Silly Eagle Books.
1. Print off the Olympic logo onto a letter-size piece of paper and then laminate it (so the ink doesn’t run when it gets wet). You could also make Olympic rings on a piece of paper with crayons.
2. Lay the laminated logo in the bottom of a pan and fill halfway with water. The laminated paper will most likely float to the top. It’s okay if it does, just follow the instructions in the next step.
3. Put in the freezer until the entire pan is frozen solid. Your laminated logo will most likely be frozen at the very top. Take it out and add more water until the paper is completely covered with water. Freeze again until completely solid.
It’s ready to go!
4. Grab some small toys and let your children have fun “ice skating” on the Olympic rink.
What could be better than Angry Birds and Star Wars characters ice skating?
Oops…Han Solo took a dive on the ice. He’ll surely get judged poorly for that one! :)
