Now when I ask Cole, “Do you want to do an art project?” He is all in. He was so excited today.
We went simple. We worked together to make the Olympic Rings.
We began by cutting out circles
And then I got out his stampers and encouraged him to stamp away, to fill in the circles.
And then I squeezed the circles into a frame, and hung it in our entrance way.
A little trivia about those rings:
- The five rings represent the five regions of the world (Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Americas)
- The five colors were representative of the colors of the flags of the countries competing in 1912 (though no color represents a specific region)
- The rings were designed in 1912 and were first used in the 1920 Antwerp, Belgium Games
Let the games begin!
