The theme for this week was Olympic craft. We are all pretty excited about Olympics.. I remember watching gymnastics as a child and more recently I was following the Beijing Olympics very keenly. London Olympics is special because Lil P has also started showing interest. We watched the torch being carried by Amitabh Bachchan .
The earlier plan was to make an Olympic torch but Lil p wanted something different.. So we made Olympic head gear instead.We cut colored circles from construction paper and then pasted onto a larger white paper rectangle. Some glue and the kids happily wore their “crowns” as they called it.
I had also printed out the gold medal on a photo quality paper and the kids stuck it onto a cardboard circle. We pinned a satin ribbon to the back and we had our very own Olympic gold medal .. We discussed about the the order of the Olympic rings, the significance of the torch & the logo on the medal..
Yesterday was a major festival for Hindus and was also a school holiday so a few kids were absent. With still time on hand, we decided to make some friendship bands as well. Foam rectangles , shiny baubles & ribbons and easy peasy friendship bands were ready.
It was an all girls gang today and while munching on snacks the kids had lots of masti..
A good day don’t you think?
