Olympics & More Olympics

After our Olympic rings craft, we decided to paint some t-shirts.  Got these 2 tank tops at WalMart-cheap.  We just used a plastic party cup and painted the rim of the cup and then pressed down onto the shirt.  I ended up tying some patriotic ribbon on the shoulders of their shirt.

Here is our banner finally finished.
Pay no attention to the hole by the #2.  Didn't realize the door handle would rip the paper.  Hence, the door stopper we have there.  

We took the easy way out and printed our gold medals.  Found here.
Flag coloring sheets found here.
Found a lot of the stuff we used here.

 I figure since we are doing all this Olympic stuff, I might as well start posting it.  We started off by going to the library and finding some books on Olympics/London.  This is what I came across.
Not a great selection, but, it will do.
This book was actually very good.  I liked it!
 This book is a picture book.  It does have at the end of the book a listing and definition of the places in the book.
 Our first craft was making the Olympic rings out of paper plates.  Real easy, just cut out the middle of the plate and then paint.  I just taped my rings together.

The finished product.
Here is the beginning of our banner.  It now hangs in our mudroom.  More pictures of this later.
