Who tears up when watching the medals ceremony? Only me? The medal ceremony can be a moving part of the Olympic games and I feel a sense of pride when I hear the Australian Anthem played and the Australia flag being raised.
As I’ve said before, when I do craft with my girls, it has to be easy. The mess should be minimal – although that’s wishful thinking because the mess is very rarely minimal! I also like to use what I have on hand in the craft box and recyclables from packaged food we’ve consumed.
This Olympic medals craft uses recyclable lids and ribbon. It helps little kids understand the ‘prizes’ at the Olympic games. This craft is not as messy at it looks and I explain why in the instructions.
