Of course we’re excited about the Olympics coming to town but we’re also considering our own budding athletes—what to do with them when all their activities are cancelled and schools are closed. We’re thinking there might be a few days when we hunker down and get cozy at home, avoid traffic and make some crafts.
Let the Crafts Begin!
Keep the Olympic Spirit burning in your home with Craft Caravan, a crafty company started by local Vancouver mom Keri Zingle. She offers a monthly mail-out of craft kits which include all the materials and directions you need to make those crafts happen. All of her crafts are themed around the calendar and your kids can make them as sophisticated (or as basic) as they want. For February, subscribers to Craft Caravan will receive all the materials they need to create their own Olympic torch—but you’ll need to sign up before January 23. At $11.99 for a one-month subscription, it might be the most inexpensive Olympic activity you do.
