Awesome! I’m going to use the torch idea with my second grade class. We are having our own Winter Olympic events next week. Thanks!


I love the torch, I am going to do that with my little ones next week, thank you!


Super cute! I would have loved to use your cookie idea when I did my little one’s Olympic theme birthday party in ’08 during the Beijing games.


This is a great idea! I would though, use a dab of frosting to “glue” the foil together instead of hot glue just to be more careful. Very cute!
