It's Olympic time again! In just a few days, the Olympic torch will reach Sochi and the games will begin.

To help get you pumped for the Olympics, we're running the Makerlympics Contest - enter any amazing thing you've made and you could take the Gold Medal in Food, Living, Play, Outdoors, Tech or Workshop!

But in the meantime, we want to see how many people we can get to make an Olympic torch and take a photo of themselves with it. It's super easy and I would love to see all of you! Let's pass the torch around the world. :D

Use the "I Made It!" button to share yours in the comments below!

Step 1: What you'll need:

∆ one piece 8.5 x 11 grey or silver paper

∆ three or four different shades of yellow, orange and red paper - 8.5 x 11

glue stick or tape for securing the torch

This Olympic torch is ridiculously easy. I made this in elementary school and did a pretty good job of it. I think glitter and paint would make this even more awesome. :D
