tissue_paper_olympic_ringsYou will find lots of fun ideas for games, crafts, printables, activities and recipes related to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London on the Camp Au Pair in America – London Olympics pinboard.

Fun Fact: The Olympic symbol consists of five interlaced rings of equal dimensions, used alone, in one or in five different colors, which are, from left to right, blue, yellow, black, green and red. The Olympic symbol (the Olympic rings) expresses the activity of the Olympic Movement and represents the union of the five continents and the meeting of athletes from throughout the world at the Olympic Games.
