    What a clever activity! I love all the fun olympic ideas you posted.

  2. Such a great idea! My daughter is just learning to cut so doing the fold-in-half idea will be a treat when she sees it’s a circle! We’ve been up to some Olympic fun this week, too!

      We have done several activities with cutting like this. The girls love it. It adds an extra step of fun to everything we are doing.

  3. What a great idea. My 4 year old is amazing with scissors, but this sort of cutting activity never occurred to me. We’ll have to give it a go! Off to pin this 🙂
