The 2014 Winter Games are almost here! Starting February 7th, athletes from around the world will come together and compete for the gold, silver, and bronze. This sporting event represents more than a simple competition. It is one of the few times when the entire world peacefully comes together to celebrate their athletes and simultaneously observe that the we aren’t as different from each other as we think.
Whether it is figure skating, skiing, snowboarding or the strangely nail-biting, excitement-inducing sport of curling, we can’t wait to cheer for Team USA! For as long as I can remember, I would watch the hours and hours of opening ceremonies coverage with my family. It is such a fun tradition! We usually have snacks and wear a little red, white, and blue. Do you like to celebrate the opening ceremonies too? Take a peek at our patriotic projects perfect for welcoming the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi!
Make a torch that will stay lit throughout the entire games with tissue paper!
Show your spirit with these glitter mason jars painted in red, white, and blue.
Ok, are you almost ready to start chanting for our team? USA! USA! USA!
