(Olympic) Medals

You will need: Cardboard, string, craft glue, scissors, hole punch,
aluminum foil, yarn/ribbon.

1. Cut a circle or other shape (star, square, pentagon, diamond, etc.)
for your medal, out of cardboard. Punch a hole near the top of
the shape.
2. Squeeze glue in a design on the cardboard shape. Then press
string into the glue (some design suggestions include: the
Olympic rings, “#1”, “1st Place”, etc.). Note: the string provides
a raised pattern that will show when covered with the foil—
making the medal look like it was made in a mold.
3. Wrap foil around the cardboard. Use your finger to gently press the foil
down around the string design.
4. Thread yarn or ribbon (red, white and blue) through the hole punched in
the top of the medal so that the medal can be worn loosely around neck.
