You will need:

Steps to make a gold medal


Step 1

Step 1

Draw two circles beside each other onto a piece of cardboard using an upturned beaker or cup. They need to be about 1cm apart. Draw two lines to connect the circles, then cut out as one shape.


Step 2

Step 2

Fold the two circles together, and glue. While this dries, cut some lengths of red, white and blue ribbon, making sure they're long enough to fit over your toddler's head once tied.


Step 3

Step 3

Paint the card with gold (or orange) paint and leave to dry, then stick on some gold stars.


Step 4

Step 4

Make a slit along the top of your medal using a craft knife (adults only), and slide the ribbons through. Tie the ends and let your tot wear with pride!
