Olympics Craft: Olympic Torch

The 2018 Winter Olympics have begun! This year’s Olympic Games is being held in PyeongChang, Korea.  The city will host Alpine Skiing, Bobsleighing, Cross-Country Skiing, Curling, Figure Skating, Freestyle Skiing, Ice Hockey, Luge, Nordic Combined, Short Track Speed Skating, Skeleton, Ski Jumping, Snowboarding, and Speed Skating.

 

The Olympics are such a fun event to watch on television. One of my favorite parts of the Olympics is the opening and closing ceremonies. So much goes into planning and creating the displays and parades that open and close the festivities. One of the great parts of the opening is the lighting and the running of the Olympic Torch. It travels to the Olympics in such a grand ceremony that it makes an incredible display.

 

Since the torch is such an important part of the opening ceremony we thought it would be fun to let the kids create their own Olympic torch at home. Thank you to Classy Mommy for such a fun and simple craft.

 

Classy Mommy has a very simple tutorial that will make it easy and fun to build your own Olympic torch at home. So head on over now to follow along, and be sure to check out all the other fun ideas she has for crafts and activities at home.

ValenSLIME

We love to share Valentine’s Day gifts that boys would be happy to share in their classrooms every year. This year we found a fun idea that will please boys and girls. SLIME.

 

Slime is a huge hit right now. So of course it would make sense to use it as a gift during birthday parties, classroom parties ,and valentine’s day.

Slime is also simple to create, easy to customize, and so inexpensive to make in bulk. All you need is a few ingredients, and some little containers to store the slime in. Thanks to Artsy Fartsy Mama we also have an incredibly cool tutorial and free printable for this fun Valenslime!

Artsy Fartsy Mama even has a fun and cool looking 3 ingredient sparkle slime that is perfect for valentine’s day. Simply head on over to her site to get all you need to plan an incredibly cool valenslime treat for your boys to hand out at school.

 

Valentine’s Day Crafts

This month we celebrate the day of love. We can love so many ways in this life. We have hearts that can grow with love everyday. A heart never stops growing, there is room for so much love. In my life alone I love my mom, my dad, my brothers, my sisters, my husband, my daughter, my sons, my dogs, my best friends. Love is endless.

 

Love can be expressed in so many ways. It doesn’t always have to be with money. During the holidays we can get caught up with spending money to show our love and appreciation. But our love can be shown through acts of love as well. I adore when my husband does things for me around the house, I adore when my daughter helps take care of her younger brother, and I love when they work on things together to make me smile.

 

This heart string craft is the perfect craft for valentines day. It is simple, fun, and it embodies love. It does require nails and a hammer, so a parent may want to help with this craft. But once the nails are set the string is very fun to assemble.

 

Thank you to Reality DayDream for the simple beginner string craft. Be sure to head over to Reality DayDream and see all of the other fun crafts you can try at home. We promise you will LOVE it.
