Olympic Tally Game

We love the Olympics in our house and while I 100% disagree with Russia’s human rights violations, the Olympics are still a great opportunity to teach my children about beauty and diversity of the world we live in. I created this Olympic Tally Game to open the conversation on different countries and cultures with my boys and thought you all might want to play along!

Olympics Tally Game - A Tried & True Project The game is really easy. Just print out my Olympic Tally Game free printable and allow each family member to choose a country they want to spotlight. Depending on the age of your children, you can either have them research their country’s flag or just show them an image to copy. I absolutely love my son’s Mexican flag! The numbers in his medal count may not but high but I’ll keep this flag forever.

Jack had a great time painting, cutting, and punching the leaves while I took the opportunity to talk with him about the origins of the Olympics. He was much more concerned about his “leaves” than my history lesson but maybe something stuck. :D
