Positivity Medals Supplies

- pencil + permanent marker

- safety pins

- hot glue gun (REMINDER: exercise precaution and supervise kids when using a hot glue gun)

Positivity Medals Step 1

1. Design the medal -- pick a metallic sticker sheet and cut or punch out the circle outline of your medal. Then cut additional shapes to join to the circle using the hot glue gun or glitter tape from the kit. Glue your pieces together. You can make the medal any shape you'd like, but we've picked a few classics to highlight below.

2. Add words of encouragement and positivity -- first use the pencil to lightly trace out your words onto the medal. Then go over the words in permanent marker. Be as silly and creative as you want!

3. Finish with some flare -- make your medal stand out! Try adding snippets of wire or cord on to resemble embroidery. Glue paillettes on to the back to highlight the medal. Decorate with fuzzy sticks, glitter tape, poms, or beads. Whatever you'd like!

4. Add a pin -- using the hot glue gun, add a decent-sized blob of glue to the back of your medal and press on a safety pin. Hold until firmly attached.
