Cardboard Tube Olympic Rings

Recycle some cardboard tubes to make this fun Olympic rings craft with the children. Lots of fun, messy painting involved!

Cardboard tube Olympic rings
Our completed cardboard tube Olympic rings!

You will need:

5 cardboard tubes
Paint in red, green, black, yellow and blue
Glue

Instructions:

Paint each tube in a different colour and leave to dry.

Cut the tubes into 5 smaller rings (optional - you could keep the tubes whole if you prefer). Take a ring from each colour and glue them together to form the Olympic Rings.

This would make a good group craft. In groups of 5 have one child paint each tube and then share the pieces with others in the group. This could lead to discussions of Olympic values and importance of co-operation and friendship.
