Mini Summer Olympics Track and Field with Legos

By Rachel Meeks

We created a miniature scene for The Summer Olympics, specifically the track and field events using Lego minifigures, paper, and pipe cleaners.

Mini Summer Olympics Track and Field with Legos

Here’s how to make your own Mini Summer Olympics Track and Field with Legos:

First, draw the track on a big sheet of paper. (We traced kitchen bowls for the curves.) Then cut it out and embellish it with starting lines.

Add a circle for the shot put event and a rectangle for the pole vault.

By bending pipe cleaners, you can craft hurdles, batons for the relays, a pole and a shot put.

Then, let the games begin!

Brutus always dominated the shot put competition. This year, he decided, he would give all his medals to his mother.

Training with his brother for the 400 meter hurdles made him push himself to run faster, he said in interviews.

But inwardly, he was tired of always coming in second place.

Glad that his shoulder injury from ’08 had finally healed, he was feeling ready and confident for the pole vault. This would be his year.

I LOVE this idea! I will definitely try this out with a family of three girls that I nanny who are originally from England, so you can imagine how much excitement is already brewing in this household for the summer Olympics! Thank you so much!

GREAT IDEA!  I know its for the summer Olympics but I would love if you link up with our link part anyway.  It would be easy to adapt for the winter with speed skating instead.
