Word class athletes aren't the only ones who deserve a gold medal! Help your kindergartener create his own shiny medal that celebrates his amazing and award-worthy accomplishments.

What You Need:

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Stapler
  • Ribbon
  • Gold glitter
  • Gold acrylic paint
  • Black marker
  • Pencil

What You Do:

  1. Draw a circle on the cardboard for the base of the medal.
  2. Use scissors to cut out the circle.
  3. Paint the cardboard circle gold and allow it to dry completely.
  4. Use a pencil to design the front of your medal. What achievements do you want to celebrate? Anything from a recent sports win to an impressive ballet recital would work!
  5. Outline the design you created with a black marker.
  6. Spread a glue stick over the entire front of your medal
  7. Sprinkle gold glitter over your medal. Shake the medal to allow the excess glitter to fall off. Make sure you do this over a trash can.
  8. Take the ribbon and measure it around your child's neck. His medal should hang squarely in the middle of his chest. Cut the ribbon to size.
  9. Staple each end of the ribbon to the back of the cardboard medal. Time for the awards ceremony!
