Your toddler will love to make (and wear!) this shiny gold medal – it’s the perfect accessory for a sports-themed party!

You will need:

  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Pencil
  • Beaker or cup
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Red, white and blue ribbons
  • Yellow or gold paint
  • Thick paintbrush
  • Sticky stars and glitter pen
  • Ribbon
  • Craft knife (adults only!)


Steps to make a gold medal

Step 1

Draw two circles beside each other onto a piece of cardboard using an upturned beaker or cup. They need to be about 3cm apart. Draw two lines to connect the circles, then cut out as one shape.

Step 2

Make a slit along the top of your medal using scissors or a craft knife (adults only).

Step 3

Paint the card with gold (or yellow) paint and leave to dry, then decorate with gold stars and glitter.

Step 4

Fold the two circles together, and glue. While this dries, cut some lengths of red, white and blue ribbon, making sure they’re long enough to fit over your toddler’s head once tied.

Step 5

Slide the ribbon through the slit, tie the ends and let your tot wear with pride!
