I am trying to watch the Olympics. I am trying to get my son interested in some of the different sports. Right now all he thinks is cool is, “Skiing really fast down the hill and jumping in the air.” Makes my heart skip a beat just to think about him doing that. AH!
So we have different pillows and cardboard pieces on various pieces of furniture to be “Jumper Skiers”. We have even made medals. All of ours are silver, though.
Now you can use construction paper or get your child to color regular paper. Draw lines on the paper and have your child cut along the lines. It is very good practice for them and you might be surprised at how well they do. Littler guys obviously will need Mom to do this.
Tada! You have an official silver medal for the Pillsbury Olympics. Not really official, and no this is not affiliated or sponsored by Pillsbury, but you knew that. :-) The kids have a blast performing the medal ceremony. Mine get such a feeling of accomplishment. It really is a lot of fun. Try it.
Watching my children get excited about earning a medal in a pretend Olympics for pretend sports might be silly to others, but brings me a lot of joy. That is why I am sharing this on Just For The Joy of It at Good, True, and Beautiful.
