Make Your Own Olympic Torch

With the Olympics nearly upon us and this time being hosted here in the UK it's a really exciting time.  The Olympic torch has been making it's journey round the country over the last months, so we decided to make our own Olympic torches.

Perfect for running around the garden with!

These were really simple to make.  We got a large piece of gold card

then the girls stuck ribbons along one of the sides (we used glue sticks which didn't work very well, so we ended up stapling them afterwards, I'd have thought that pva glue would work fine otherwise.)  We then rolled the cardboard up into a cylinder and secured with sticky tape.

One made there was lots of running around the garden from Little Chick

And Shoeshine.  There was definitely the needing to run off energy for some reason this afternoon!

And plenty of falling over, diving down and generally having fun.

These were super simple to make and have resulted in lots of fun play, waving and running round.

Can't wait for the real Games to begin!


  1. I've given you an award-details on my blog!

  2. This is just wonderful! It looks like a great way to motivate running around the yard!
