An Activity for Preschoolers:

Before You Begin:
Discuss with the children how the Olympics work and which athletes get 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. You'll need the following materials: wood photo ornaments, glue, glitter, paint, brushes, construction paper and glitter glue.
To create a wearable craft to role-play Olympic winners in 1st, 2nd and 3rd places!
Let children choose a medal to create or create all three. Optionally, create a layer of gold, silver and bronze to represent all three medals on one.
Let's Get Started
Remove the backing and plastic cover from the ornament.
Brush the ornament with glue and cover it with gold, silver or bronze glitter; or, paint the medal with metallic activity paint.paint
Allow the medal to dry.
Create a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place marker circles that fits into the photo-holder. Then, cut them out.
Once the ornament is dry, insert the place marker circles into the medal and replace the backing.
Replace the ornament holder with ribbon to make the medal complete and ready to wear!
