Kids' Craft: how to sculpt DIY Olympic Medals
When I was a kid, watching the summer Olympics was a blast - you were on holiday from school so you could watch as much crazy sporting action as you liked, plus you were young enough that dreaming of being the next Kelly Holmes or Greg Louganis seemed perfectly reasonable.
Now that a lot of us are raising kids of our own, watching the Olympics seems like fun again. It can be crafty, too. Celebrate the spirit of the Olympics by trying out this cool salt dough medals how-to from The Imagination Tree with your kidlets.
Not only will sculpting these beautifully simple medals get kids excited about making stuff, but they'll get them excited about running, jumping, and swimming, too. With these medals and a little imagination, you can make the Olympics and Paralympics into a summer-long festival of friendly competition. And that'll make everyone feel like a winner.
