It’s time for the Olympics. It is such a big event. I never really thought about the history of the Olympic Games. Then 3 years ago we went to Greece and we visited Olympia (where the first Olympic Games were held in 776BC.) And wow, words can’t explain how amazing I felt when I walked on the first Olympic Stadium. Here are some photos of Olympia. (top photo: The first ever Olympic Games stadium.

Here we were at the “modern” Olympic Stadium, it was built in 1896. (and my sexy hubby with the torch)
But you are not here to read about my Olympic experience. The Olympic Torch is synonym for the Olympic Games. It represents the start of the games. So, we will also start to make our own torches. You can use the torches for many things: decor, running relay or to eat
Here is very good and creative ideas to make your own torch for your own Olympic Games at home.
Light the torch’s flame and let the Games begin!
