6 Winter Olympic Themed Crafts and Activities For Kids

Even though it feels like we just watched the 2020 Olympics this past summer, the 2022 Winter Olympics are not too far away. With the Winter Olympics 2022 set to occur from Friday, February 4 to Sunday, February 20, we would like to share some fun ideas of activities, crafts, and treats for families with small children to do together during the event. Not only will these activities help you and your kids get more familiar with the Winter Olympics but the activities will also help you get moving, get creative, and spend some quality time together.


Paper Plate Olympic Torch Craft

First and foremost, you can celebrate the start of the Winter Olympics on February 4 whether or not you actually watch the ceremony on television. This easy Olympic Torch Craft is made of 3 simple things – cheap paper plates, flame-colored tissue paper, and tape! For extra sparkle you can customize your torch with optional gold star stickers, gold sharpies, gold or silver tape, or any other extra crafts you have lying around.

Handprint USA Flag

These simple Handprint USA Flags are not only great for cheering on Team USA but they can also be kept for 4th of July celebrations. First, paint your kids hands with on-toxic paint. First, paint their palm blue then paint the fingers in alternating red and white paint. Throw on a little sparkle with glitter or star-shaped confetti. Then glue the short end of paper on a popsicle stick and you are done! For a little extra fun, hole punch the tip of the paper and add red, white and / or blue string.

Bonus: Bounce around in an inflatable

Contact us to rent your bounce house today!

Also, don’t forget the snacks! Keep up the energy from you and your mini Olympic medalists by stocking up on snacks. Even take this a step further and create your own homemade snacks such as homemade popcorn from a quality popcorn machine rental or make your own “snow” with our snow cone machine rental.
