Olympic Torch Children’s Craft

Get your kids in the Olympic spirit with this fun Olympic Torch children’s craft!

Olympic Torches Kids Craft

The Olympics start tonight!!  I’m so excited, as are my kids.  My son is bummed he can’t watch hours and hours of it everyday like he did with the last summer Olympics.  He absolutely loved watching water polo.  It didn’t matter who was playing, if water polo was on, he wanted to be watching.  I absolutely love the Olympics but even I was getting tired of water polo!!

But he is in school and with the time difference, I’m sure he won’t be watching as much this year.  However,  I know our evenings for the next few weeks will be spent watching the Olympics.

I love it would be fun to make a craft to get the kids into the Olympic spirit.  Of course, I’m all about easy when it comes to kids crafts and these torches fit that bill.  My 4 year old did almost her entire torch by herself and my 2 year old did quite a bit of his too.

Olympic Torches - Kids Craft

Olympic Torch

What you need:

  • 1 paper towel roll
  • 2 paper towels
  • gold paint
  • markers (red, yellow, & orange)
  • spray bottle with water
  • tape

How to:

  • Paint the paper towel roll gold and set aside to dry.
  • Color the paper towels with the markers.  Scribbling work perfectly.
  • Spray the paper towels with the water and let the color run & blend together.
  • Let the paper towels & roll dry completely.
  • Set the paper towels on top of each other.  Bunch in the middle and stuff into one end of the paper towel roll. Secure with tape.

And that’s it.

My kids had a lot of fun making these and playing with them afterwards.  Of course, Jet (2 yr old) thought his was a sword.
