Olympic Ring Printing with Pool Noodles

Use pool noodles and paint to create your very own Olympic Ring art!

FYI:  This activity isn’t included in our Olympic Activities for Kids eBook because I thought of it after the fact. :)

Here’s what you’ll need:  pool noodle, serrated knife, and paint (blue, yellow, black, green & red).


1. Use a serrated knife to cut 2-3 inches off the end of your pool noodle. Repeat for the remaining 4 “stamps”.




 2. Pour some paint onto some paper plates or washable trays.


3. Place a pool noodle stamp in each glob of paint.


4. Let your child begin making their Olympic Ring Prints!




 This was one of our first “real paint” projects with Little Brother and he was so proud of himself!




  1. Great itdea! If you don’t have pool noodles, you can also use paper towel tubes or toilet paper tubes. I have done this with my students before.

  2. This is the right blog for everyone who would like to find out about this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa).

    You certainly put a new spin on a topic that’s been written about for ages. Excellent stuff, just great!
