Making Medals – Craft for Kids

Making Medals - Craft for Kids

Pebble and I were playing with balloons last week and got into a good game of balloon football. “Now we need to give out the medals!”, Pebble announced. “Can we make medals?”. Sure we can! I grabbed some bits and bobs and this is what we came up with.

Making Medals - Craft for Kids

You will need:

  • cardboard (we used the side of a cereal box)
  • tin foil
  • ribbon or string
  • hole punch
  • scissors
  • small cup (or other round object to trace around)
  • pencil
  • optional:sticky letters

To make your medals

  • Make circle shapes on to the cardboard by tracing around the cup with the pencil.
  • Cut out the circles.
  • Tear off pieces of tin foil about twice the size of your circles.
  • Wrap each circle in tin foil, keeping one side flat and shiny.
  • Use the hole punch to make one hole in the top of each foil wrapped circle.
  • Thread the ribbon or string through the hole and tie it to make a necklace.
  • Decorate your medal with sticky letters if you wish. Sharpies are also great for drawing on foil.
  • Wear your medal proudly!

The stuff we learned:

  • tracing
  • cutting
  • shapes
  • initial letter sounds
  • threading
  • wrapping
  • hole punching

What have your kids been making?
