Winter Olympics

Winter Olympics 2018 logoThe Winter Olympics start in PyeongChang, South Korea on 9 February and end on the 25th. A total of 94 nations will be represented, six of which will be making their Winter Olympic debut.

With such worldwide significance, I thought it might be a good idea to use this as the basis for some planning at the club, so I went looking for some activities to represent both the Games and South Korea. Here are a few that I found, that you might want to try with the kids at your club:

*Floor hockey and sock skating 
Two fun and easy Olympic sports that you can do inside!

*Olympic ski jumping challenge
How far can you make your ski-jumper go?

Making home-made snow*Home-made snow
We don't often have snow here in the UK, so why not make some of your own?

*Small world Winter Olympics
Make your own miniature Winter Olympics course. You could even use some of the home-made snow (see above) for added authenticity.

*Blow skiing
This simple ski-slalom game is really easy to set up.

*Sugar painting snowflakes
Create some beautiful snowflakes with sugar.

*South Korean printables
Printable of the South Korean flag and other Korean-themed colouring pages.

*Kongki Noli
Try this traditional Korean challenge game.
