The Olympics - Day 351

Since today is the opening ceramony for the London Olympics, I have been preparing the boys with different crafts and activities. We made our own Olympic torch out of a paper roll tube. I cut cunstruction paper and glued them together for the flame.

Then I had Bennny gently crumple the tinfoil.

I taped the end of the foil to the tube. Roll the tinfoil around and secure it with hot glue.

Fold the ends into the end of the tube.

Cut a slit on either side of the tube and slide the paper through. Use hot glue and run it up and down the seam.

We also made a red white a blue chain to hang over the window.

I made some scones earlier in the week and I will make some more tonight and eat it with herbal tea.
This recipe is so much better with the whipped cream!

You're such a fun mom. We haven't even watched the Olympics, lol. Those scones sound fabulous.
