It's Playtime: Olympic Gold Pt. 2

Everyone has Olympic Fever and It's Playtime is no exception!  Olympic Crafts, play ideas, and more were shared last week so it seems only natural to feature a few more creative ways to bring the Olympics alive in your house.

Jada Roo Can Do created an Olympic Pool Sensory Tub to inspire little Jada and her friends to "dive" into fun.

You and your kids can create some easy Recycled Medals via The Iowa Farmers Wife.  Afterwards, hold a ceremony and hand out awards for the best "picker upper" or laundry sorter.  If you are really creative you'll be able to keep up that kind of "play" for awhile ;)

 I love this little indoor Summer vs. Winter Olympics game put together by Reading Confetti!  It was inspired by the book G is for Gold Medal: An Olympics Alphabet.  Besides this fun activity, Reading Confetti shares how they created simple gold medals.

If you were featured this week, don't forget to grab your special "featured button."

These activities plus more can be found over on the It's Playtime Pinterest Board.  Happy Pinning!
