Olympic Medals

Do you have Olympic fever yet???  We definitely do!  We've been counting down the days until the Olympics all month and we are just giddy with excitement that they are finally here.  I completely feel like I'm a kid watching them!

This week will be all about the Olympics!!  We have tons of stuff to do to celebrate this awesome event!

First up is Olympic Medals.

I saw the idea over at The Imagination Tree.  We used our regular salt dough recipe which consists of: 

1/2 cup table salt
1/2 cup warm water
1 cup of flour

Mix everything together and knead for about 5-10 minutes until it's softened and smooth. 

We added glitter to our medals to make them sparkle some!

And then Anna decided to add ALLLLL of the glitter!

Roll out your sparkly salt dough and then cut out circles (we used a cup to cut out our shapes).

For the numbers, we used some of our letter/number magnets and just pressed them into the dough before we baked them.  Don't forget to add a little hole at the top of the medal for your ribbon (we used a straw).

Bake the medals at 200 degrees for about 2 hours.

Once cooled, paint them gold, silver and bronze!

Now go have races around your house!  Hope you win first place!
