Olympic Games Crafts – Torch

What you need:

1 large takeaway coffee cup
50cm piece of dowel
1 can of aluminium spray paint 1 piece of box cardboard for spare parts
craft knife
hot glue gun
orange cellophane (for the Olympic Flame)

Start by cutting about 5cm off the bottom of a takeaway coffee cup.

Use the bottom half to make the cup of the Olympic Torch. Criss-cross the centre of the base to thread the dowel through.

Use the spare cardboard to trace out a circle that matches the base of the coffee cup. This will be the little disc detail under the main flame cup.

Make a criss-cross cut it in the centre of your ‘torch’, then put some hot glue on the centre and push the dowel through, leaving about 4cm coming out the top.

Now thread the top end of the dowel through the base of the coffee cup. Hot glue it in place.

Spray paint your Olympic Torch all silver.

Bunch up half a sheet of cellophane and secure it in the middle with masking tape. Stick that in the top of your torch cup and use the hot glue gun to hold it in place.

Now take your torch for a run in the park. Practise passing it forward relay-style. Get your kids to run in slow-motion before they pass the torch for extra Olympic fun.
