This simple Olympic Medal craft makes it easy to spread that winning feeling:
Using a coffee can or other cylinder as a template, help your kids trace circles on a piece of construction paper, poster board or a paper plate. Punch a hole through the top and thread a ribbon through to complete the basic medal. Then let the kids decorate the medals any way they choose! Have fun filing the medals with color and adding funny themes, such as “Hide & Seek Champ,” “Best Bathtime Hair-Do” or “Best Knock-Knock Joke.”
