Olympic Rings

5 cups (Styrofoam work better)
5 plates or bowls
Blue, black, red, yellow, and green paint
Paint brush
White paper

To be fair, this craft turned out better than it should have. I just wanted something Olympic to put on the door of my office. The only thing you need to do is put a thin layer of paint in each plate and use the lid of the cup like a stamp. The rings are going to be a bit uneven in the paint thickness, but I actually liked how that looked. I had a lot of white space left so I free handed a version of the Olympic logo on the bottom. Unfortunately I still had an area of white space left since I have no depth perception.

Disaster level: * (It came out looking pretty good in spite of my measuring error)
