Here is a quick and easy way to make your own "gold" medal for the Olympic games! Make sure the kids don't eat the bread, though! Unfortunately this was one of our earlier crafts and the photo is very poor quality and small, but you can see that Jack wore his gold medal proudly!
You will need:
Slice of stale bread
Round pastry cutter
Gold paint (or silver, or bronze)
Cut a circle out of the bread with the pastry cutter. Make a small hole near the edge of the circle. Bake the bread in a low temperature oven until it is hard (about 30 minutes).
When cool, paint with gold paint. Leave to dry. Thread the ribbon through the hole, and wear proudly!
