If you’re looking for another fun and easy Olympics craft for your kids to make, these homemade Olympic medals are great. With just a few basic supplies, kids can make a set of gold, silver and bronze medals to hand out at their pretend Olympic medal ceremonies.
At our house, during the two weeks that the Olympics are on television, my daycare kids like to hold their own Olympic Games here in the playroom. They make up pretend versions of the events they’ve been watching at home, and they re-enact them together, each one ending in its own medal ceremony.
Normally, they use my sons’ old hockey medals for their award ceremonies, but recently, I thought it would be fun to make some gold, silver and bronze Olympic medals for them to use for pretend play.
We whipped these ones up using a few basic household supplies and we think they look great.
They were quick and easy to make and the kids enjoyed the process. They were so proud to have “real” Olympic medals to hand out to their friends and take home at the end of the day.
Pop on over to CBC Parents, to see how to make our Olympic Medal Craft. Your kids will love having a set to use for their Olympics pretend play at your house.
