Summer and Winter Games Ring Craft

Olympic Symbol

Count down the days to the Games with this ring paper craft!

Did You Know: The 5 intertwined rings on the Games flag symbolize the 5 inhabited continents throughout the world: America (North and South), Africa, Asia, Australia, and Europe. The colors blue, yellow, black, green, and red were chosen because every nation includes at least one of those colors in its national flag.
