The Olympics have finally arrived . . . and so has Playtime’s revamped curriculum! The first week of our August curriculum will focus on the summer games and kids will get the opportunity to learn about London, work on fine motor skills by making Olympic flags, develop gross motor skills in Playtime’s very own Olympic Games, and hear the story of Lolo Jones – an Olympic athlete who lived in a shelter as a child.

If you are looking for other activities to supplement those available in Playtime’s curriculum, check out the following websites:

  • Time For Kids: Here you will find Olympics articles, including ones  “Road to London,” “Passing the Torch,” “Paralympic Games,” “Athlete Q&A’s,” “London 2012 Venues,” “By the Numbers,” and “All About England.”
  • Kaboose: Olympic-themed activities for kids include crafts, activities, games and a trivia quiz.
