Winter Olympics: 3 Crafts to Celebrate the Games

olympicscollagepin
The Winter Olympics are here and I’ll admit that I am more excited about crafting for the theme than the actual event. Since Jayden is at an impressionable age, I figured we’d celebrate the upcoming games with some fun crafts. This week, we made an Olympic ring display, laurel leaf crown, and a gold medal using materials we had on hand. It’s always exciting when I don’t have to make a run to the store… especially in this weather. Each and every craft and recipe I pull off without shopping leaves me feeling like a boss. ;) If your craft supplies are in need of replenishing, you can find everything at Walmart.

Olympic Rings
