14 Summer Crafts to cheer on the Arab Summer Athletes {Resource}

Olympics collageThe 2016 Summer Games have started in Brazil this week.  We are excited at our house to cheer on the 486 athletes who will represent the Arab world in 362 events.

Over the years, we have created over a dozen projects to celebrate these Middle East and North African (also called MENA) countries and we thought we’d share them with you.

Please feel free to visit some of these activities over the next two weeks to cheer on your favorite MENA country.

(Notes – 1- Kuwait has been suspended, however athletes from that country will be participating. 2 – We have created two Syria crafts for both flags and also wanted to include a project to help refugees)

Start by dowloading some free printables to get to know the MENA countries that are members of the Arab League:
