Second Grade Arts & crafts Activities: Olympic Rings Picture

What You Need:

  • Circular object such as a round cookie cutter or clean metal can (free of sharp edges) to use for printing
  • Tempera paint in blue, yellow, black, green, and red
  • White construction paper
  • Paint palette or washable tray
  • Picture of the Olympic rings from a book or website (or other source) for reference

What You Do:

  1. Discuss the Olympic Games with your child. Research ancient and modern-day Olympic history in books or online. Talk about what the rings symbolise and why they were created.
  2. Pour small puddles of each paint colour on the paint palette or washable tray, making sure not to mix them.
  3. Start with the blue ring. Ask your child to dip her cookie cutter (or other printing object) into the paint, then press onto the white paper to print.
  4. Repeat step 3 for the other colors, allowing your child to figure out how the rings should be placed and interlocked on her own. Keep the picture of the Olympic rings handy for your child to use as a guide.

You can vary this activity by changing the size of your printing object. Use a larger coffee can or smaller cookie cutter to create dozens of prints from large to small.
