Did you watch the Women’s Team Competition in gymnastics last night on the Olympics? What did you think? I was very proud of how Team USA performed! For today’s doll play activity recreate a medal ceremony for your favorite sport. It’s easy to make a podium and medals are a piece of cake, too.
Earlier this year I made an awards podium for our dolls from American Girl doll boxes. You can make the podium easily using whatever boxes you happen to have around. For complete details on how to make this and the printable numbers for the placements visit my post on how to make an awards podium.
Here is McKenna listening to the National Anthem during the Medal Ceremony. To make her gold medal, simply do a Google image search for “2012 London Olympics gold medal” and print out the image you like. Cut out the medal and then thread a wide piece of ribbon through the medal and tie around your doll’s neck. Sing the National Anthem with your doll and be sure to have your camera on hand to take lots of photos of your gold medal girl!
Have a great day! More posts to come today including Wilde Wednesday.
