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.

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.

 

Heart Hedgehog Craft

I love a good holiday craft. Raise your hand if you are one of those moms that decorates for every holiday. GUILTY! I love to see the decorations and feel a little uplifted by the sweet colors and cheery appearance.

 

I especially love it when my kids art crafts are displayed for the holiday season. I love to look at their little crafts and remember the day we made them, how old they were, and see how much they have grown.

 

I try to do crafts with my kids at home. Even if it is only something small. For Valentine’s Day this year I wanted to do something different. Not the routine heart designs. That is when I happened upon this adorable Heart Hedgehog craft. It has the traditional heart and colors of Valentine’s day, but the little hedgehog is just so darling I couldn’t stand it — I just had to have it.

Thank you to Fireflies and Mudpies for such a sweet and out of the box idea for my February craft. Now I have a brand new memory and a brand new craft to display every February.
