Are you looking for a fun way to celebrate the Olympics with your kids? Check out these Olympic wreath style leaf crowns! They are easy to make, and I have a solution if you don’t just happen to have the perfect vines growing in your back yard.
Mike fashioned crowns for all three kids out of a climbing vine that was trying to take over our gutter pipe. This simple DIY nature craft was easy to make and inspired all sorts of fun pretend play for the kids! Since these crowns look like Olympic wreaths they also make a great Olympics-themed craft!
How to Make an Olympic Wreath Leaf Crown – Fun Olympics Craft for Kids
We happened to have a hanging vine growing in our yard that we knew would not cause any skin issues for our kids, but you can also buy artificial vines. Wrap around the crown of your child’s head a couple of times, and twist to keep in place. The leaves keep the Olympic wreat / leaf crown from unravelling.
Emma especially enjoyed pretending to be a tiny fairy running and dancing around our yard.
She is now campaigning for me to purchase some pretend ivy to turn into indoor leaf crowns / Olympic wreaths.
Do you have a fun Olympics themed craft that my kids would enjoy?
