MAD (Mindie, Adam, Alex, David) Family Fun is the result of friends and family asking "How do you find so much fun stuff to do?" So, I decided to share with everyone! There are no BIG secrets involved, I promise. I just have a knack for finding fun and now I want to share it with you!

MAD Family Fun is a place to find activities, events and ideas to have more fun with your family. Enjoy!

Olympic torch craft

Before the Olympics can begin, there has to be the running (or in the case of our youngest Fun Tester, the sitting) of the torch!

The torch is a tradition started at the Berlin Olympics in 1936.  The torch is lit at the site of the Ancient Olympics – Olympia (Greece) and relayed to the site of the current Olympics over the course of several months.

The torch is carried by athletes, politicians and ordinary people. In fact, we here at MAD are proud to be related to one torch bearer, my uncle Mr Scienski.

Now it is time for you to grab a paper towel tube and wrap it in tinfoil. Stuff some tissue paper in the end and you have your very own torch. Now, make the kids run around the block in honor of the Olympics (and maybe even wear the out for bedtime.)
