Just in time for the Winter Games, Julie Follansbee from Macaroni Kid joins us to make medals out of pasta.

Wear your macaroni medal as you cheer on your favorite athletes!

You will need: 
  • Cardboard (check your recycling bin!)
  • Pasta (macaroni or any other shape you have available!)
  • Glitter glue in gold and silver
  • Paintbrush (optional)
  • Ribbon
Use the cap from an empty jar or a glass to trace a circle onto the cardboard. Cut out the circle and set aside.

Cover your pasta in glitter glue. You can place a pool of glitter glue on a piece of paper  or small tray and simply roll the pasta in it with your fingers. If this sounds too messy, kids can also use a paintbrush.

Add some glitter glue to the cardboard circle, then press the pasta onto the cardboard circle. Leave a small space at the top to punch a hole for your ribbon.

Once dry, use a hole punch and make a hole in the top of your medal and add your ribbon.

Wear your medal with pride!
