QuiBids Olympics

The 2014 Winter Games are here, and we want to help you cheer on your favorite athletes as they make their attempts at gold over the coming weeks.

We’ve searched the internet high and low and have compiled a list of the most creative and fun things you can do the next time you tune into the 2014 Sochi games. Anything we missed? Let us know in the comments!

Medal Count Printable

Keep track of your favorite country’s medal counts throughout the winter games by coloring in the circles on these printables. Great for the kiddos!

Printables found at Create.Craft.Love.

DIY Torch

Materials:

  • Gold Poster board from a craft or paper shop
  • Red cellophane (tissue paper works too)
  • A popsicle stick, old pencil, or broken chopstick
  • Tape
  • Hot glue gun

Directions:

  1. Heat up your hot glue gun.
  2. Roll the gold posterboard the long way until you have the shape you like. Hot glue it together.
  3. Insert a circular piece of paper with a hole in the middle inside the top of the tube. Adhere it with hot glue. This will hold the flame in place.
  4. Cut two large squares from the cellophane tissue. Lay them flat at different angles.
