Tissue Paper Olympic Rings
This Olympic craft was designed to help everyone get into the Olympic spirit. Have the kids make these Tissue Paper Olympic Rings as a group project. Great craft to teach color recognition and coordination.
The Olympic rings of blue, black, yellow, red and green traditionally represent the five different areas of the world involved in the Olympics (North and South America are considered one area, along with Africa, Australia, Asia and Europe).
