The Olympic Rings

We looked at the Olympic emblem - the five interlocking rings which represent five different parts of the world. Baron Pierre de Coubertin (the founder of the Modern Olympic Games) designed these rings in 1913. To help us remember the colours of the rings we made Olympic biscuits.

The recipe:

Plain biscuits
White icing (icing sugar, vanilla essence, water)
Blue, yellow, black, green and red M & M's or Peebles

Spread the biscuit with the white icing, place the Peebles or M & M's in the same order as the rings on the Olympic emblem and ENJOY eating :)
