Summer Olympics

The 2012 Summer Olympics, London is coming, Friday, 27 July 2012!
So I preparing Gabriel early with circular art. I thought it would resemble the well-known Olympic-linking-circles:

piece of paper
Paper tube

Dip the tube in the paint then "stamp" onto the paper.

Yes, that easy!And so fun, so pretty.

The Official Olympic Flag
Created by Pierre de Coubertin in 1914, the Olympic flag contains five interconnected rings on a white background. The five rings symbolize the five significant continents and are interconnected to symbolize the friendship to be gained from these international competitions. The rings, from left to right, are blue, yellow, black, green, and red. The colors were chosen because at least one of them appeared on the flag of every country in the world. The Olympic flag was first flown during the 1920 Olympic Games.

And then read about the History of the Olympic Torch, Flame, and Relay!

I also took this as a time to teach Gabriel about the Special Olympics. The NJ Special Olympics had its opening ceremonies this past Friday, 6/8/12.
