Olympics medal craft

5 Dec

This craft was done during the Olympics 2012. I decided to give my daughter a gold medal too for being such a lovely girl that she is. 🙂

Things required for 'Olympics medal' craft are: White paper, a circle shape (I took the letter O but you may draw the circles free hand as well), gold, silver and reddish-pink glitters(for bronze, in case you dont have it like me) , scissors, red ribbon and a pen.

Draw 3 circles on the white paper for gold silver and bronze medals.

My daughter decide to play with the glitters while waiting for the paper to dry. She did a good practice of her fine motor skills while putting the cap on the glitter glues and then taking them off.

Once dry, cut the circles out, make a punch in them and put the red ribbon thru the hole. Tie it at the other end. Your Gold Medalist can be proud of his/her achievement now!

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
