Make your own Olympic Medals to celebrate the upcoming Summer Olympic games. Your kids will love these medals and they are great for imaginative play. You can have a lot of fun holding events in and around the house. Set up a long jump or relay race in the back yard or have your kids make up an event with their own rules!
– Polymer clay (gold, silver and bronze)
– any embellishments you might like to add
These awesome DIY Olympic Medals are very easy to make and because we used Polymer clay, they will last for a very long time. Polymer Clay is a great product as it comes in many colours, is moldable and bakes hard. Other items used were ribbon and a sharp pencil (to make some designs). You do need to use an oven to bake the clay, I have a toaster oven set aside for this reason (be sure to bake them in a well ventilated area). You can decorate however you choose, we used a simple design on ours and added the classic Olympic Rings. Don’t forget to put a hole in the top for some ribbon!
After baking and cooling you can attach the ribbon. Once the ribbon has been attached, they are done and ready for use!! My girls loved making these and playing with them afterwards.
We can’t wait for the Olympics to start and while we wait these medals will certainly keep the Olympic Spirit high. If you are looking for a great game idea to use these medals with try the Olympic Ring Toss.
