The Olympics are just a few days away! We love to watch the Olympics and turn them into a learning experience. But we aso love to make it fun with themed decorations, foods and fun!
So here’s our next simple project that our kids love – making Chocolate Gold Coin Olympic Gold Medals!
Here’s what you need:
- Markers – Blue, Black, Red, Yellow and Green (the Olympic Ring colors)
- Glue stick
- Hole Reinforcements
- Chocolate Gold Coins
Note about the coins: Outside of the Christmas season, these little coins can be a bit challenging to find! BUT… Walgreens does have their brand (NICE) sold in their store all of the time in the candy aisle. They are .99 for a pack of 5 coins. Three of the 5 coins are half-dollar size and two are quarter size. We only used the half-dollar coins as the quarter ones are too small.
How To Make:
Color the reinforcements in the blue, black, red, yellow and green colors. Color as many as you need.
Glue the ribbon together with a glue stick at the bottom. Hold it for about 30 seconds to create a good bond.
Then attach the gold coin to the ribbon with the glue stick and gently hold for another 30 seconds to create a good bond.
Then stick your “rings” onto the front of the gold coin in the shape of the Olympic rings as shown here:
Then let it dry for a bit longer until all of the glue has dried.
Wear and enjoy!
