  1. I just ran across your blog today when I googled "olympic medal craft for kids". My sorority hosts a summer reading program each year and this years theme is the olympics so I have been busy finding craft ideas for the kiddos. Plus, I have a six year old and a three year old that love to do crafts. I am a new follower and cannot wait to browse more. Thanks for all the great olympic ideas! Keep up the great work!
