Olympic Poster Inspired Art

Pin It Now!

Have you seen this Olympic Poster yet?  I ran across the image on Pinterest and as soon as I saw it I knew it was something Avery and I could use for inspiration for some Olympic artwork.  

I set out some paper plates with cups on them and let her go to work stamping some Olympic circles onto the paper (I only had 4 cups so we went back after we were done with green, red, yellow, and blue and added the black).  

I love how the picture turned out and she is so proud of it.  She showed it off to her daddy as soon as he got home from work!  

Go here to see where I am linking up!

    This is such a cute idea, we just had to share it on our blog!
