Olympic Ring Contemporary Art

With the upcoming Summer Olympic Games, why not use make an Olympic ring contemporary art project with your children or students in summer school?  That's exactly what we did today with some empty toilet paper rolls and paint.  I saw the idea here, and thought it would be a wonderful connection to the festivities that will happen in London later this month. 

For this project you'll need:
Five colors of paint (red, green, blue, yellow, and black)
At least one empty toilet paper roll/color
Paper plates/bowls for the paint
White tag board (or other heavy paper)

Set up the paint and let the kids create!

NOTE - We attempted using paper towel holders; however, they were too long and kept toppling over into the other paint colors - making a mess.  If I were to do this again, I would only use toilet paper rolls or cut the towel paper ones in half.  

This was an enjoyable project for 8-10 year olds and for me as well.
