TLS Campers made an Olympic arena out of the magic tree, complete with uneven bars (aka a bent tree), a balance beam/vault, and a volleyball/beachball court. There was even a NASCAR track... still yet to be an Olympic sport, but one can hope (come on Rio 2016!) Campers designed their own gold/silver/bronze medals, and looked fab-u-lous sporting their constructions.
"Each day we compared the weather in London and Hillsborough and talked about it would affect the athletes and the fans. We painted Olympic rings and talked about how the 5 colors represent the colors on the flags of the countries participating in the games, and also the original five areas of the world where the athletes came from. We read many books about the Olympics including Magic Tree House: Hour of the Olympics which taught us a lot about Ancient Greece. In housekeeping we pretended to open stores and restaurants for in London and in blocks we tried to make an Olympic pool, stadiums, and even Buckingham Palace! We also kept track of the Team USA Medal count and talked about many different sports and athletes in the games."
As for the rest of the world, watch out for the Olympians of the future... TLS has the gold in bubble blowing wrapped up!
