Olympics in Thailand?

Olympics in Thailand?

If Thailand held the Olympics, what would their mascots look like and represent? We asked students that question, and here’s what they created:

Thai flag + long neck Karen hill tribe mascot

Olympic rings around an elephant nose with Thai colors

Elephant, flags, torch, water representing the Gulf of Thailand, flowers, and rings

The colors, flag, and water guns on the feet for Songkran

At Panyaden School we celebrated the Olympics and started with our own opening ceremony.

Mascot interpretive dance showing the events – here is swimming

We had 5 different countries competing representing one of each region of the 5 rings: Nepal, Luxembourg, Kenya, Argentina, and Papua New Guinea. Why these countries? We wanted to make sure not to have any of the students’ many home countries in the mix.

Here is Kenya

Of course we had a few events.

A fun day was had by all.
