The Olympics – final countdown
The 2016 Summer Olympics is knocking at the door, that’s why we have prepared for you a small brain teaser – to make the Olympic symbol.
The five rings symbolise the five continents. The interlocking rings symbolise the friendship among all nations worldwide – as is the main idea of the Olympic Games.
This activity is suitable for bigger children.
It seems quite easy, but it is not:)
You nee two empty toilet paper rolls. Cut five rings, about 1.5 cm – 2 cm.
- Mark where the cuts will be.
- Two of the rings must have two cuts, standing 1.5 cm apart.
- Three of the rings must have 4 cuts (see the picture)
Take the rings with the four cuts and try to fasten them as shown on the picture. The cuts of the yellow and green rings must be on the outer parts.
If you are successful with the above fastening, the adding of the rings at the two sides will be piece of cake. At the end colour the rings – blue, black, red, yellow and green.
