Free Printable Olympics Paper Chains

Our extensive collection of paper chain designs is a great craft to bring the excitement of the Olympic Games into your living room!

With the cute Phryges mascot representing each sport and designs that include the iconic Olympic rings and the Paris 2024 emblem, you can decorate your space to feel like the heart of the Olympic action.

Paper chains are a wonderful activity for children of all ages. They can help cut the printed strips of paper, link them to form chains, and plan patterns with the various designs.

Not only does this craft encourage creativity and fine motor skills, but it’s also a fantastic way to spend quality time together.

These chains can then be draped around your home or party venue to add a festive touch to your Olympic celebrations!

How To Make Paper Chains

Paper chains are one of the cheapest and easiest party decorations you can make! All you need are scissors, a stapler or adhesive (roller glue tape, glue stick, or sticky tape), and our free printable templates.

  • Print as many sheets of paper chain strips as you need (there are 15 per page). Cut each strip using scissors or a paper trimmer.
  • Take one of the strips, staple it, or add a dab of glue. We like glue rollers for less mess and quick drying. Place them on one end and fold them around to form a circle. This is the first link/loop in your chain.
  • Now, slide another strip of paper into that link, add a dab of glue on the end, and fold around to form a circle attached to the first loop.
  • Continue linking the loops until you reach the desired chain length, then hang it across walls, mantles, or anywhere else you want to decorate!

As the world comes together to watch the games, you can join in the global festivity with your own homemade Olympic decor. Encourage your kids to learn about different sports and the countries participating in the Olympics as they craft these fun paper chains.
