Homemade Olympic medal


By Caitlin Murray Giles


Another simple Olympic-themed project is making medals with your little Olympians. Organize some friendly "Olympic competition" between the kids, complete with a medal ceremony to show off your creations.


  • Plastic cover from a large container (such as a sour cream or hummus container)
  • Gold, silver and bronze paint
  • Paint brush
  • Glitter
  • Hole punch
  • Thick ribbon (about 3 feet)


Paint round plastic lids with gold, silver or bronze paint. Add glitter or other decorations if you wish.

Once the paint is completely dry, use a hole punch to make a hole on each side of the lid.

Reuse a ribbon from around the house to complete your medal. Thread the ribbon through the holes, securing with knots on the backside and the medal is ready to be awarded to the best competitor.
