Olympic Torch Passed from Child to Child at Bronxville Library; See Photos Print

Feb. 12, 2014:  You don't have to travel to Sochi to take part in the Winter Olympics! This past Saturday, February 8, more than 50 children participated in the Bronxville Public Library's version of the 2014 Winter Olympics.  

The Olympic torch was passed from child to child as the children worked furiously to complete crafts that included painting Olympic rings and making laurel wreaths. 

A scavenger hunt to find letters to spell Sochi had the children searching the children's room from top to bottom. 

The favorite event of the day was the Olympian photo booth. All smiled as they took their turns atop the winner's podium wearing a giant gold medal and holding the Olympic torch up high.  

What was the best part of the afternoon? Every child went home a winner! Gold medals were awarded to all participating young Olympians. And who knows? There just may have been a future real Olympian in attendance!
