Olympic Medal Cookies!



Go for the gold with these Olympic medal cookies!

Make your favorite cookies and gather some gold foil, patriotic ribbon and hot glue.

Wrap cookies in the gold foil.

Fasten with a drop of hot glue, making sure not to touch the cookie. Attach ribbon to back of wrapped cookie with hot glue.

Finish off back by gluing a circle of the gold foil on top of the ribbon. Kids might want to embellish the front with a picture of their favorite sport.

Get fired up with an Olympic torch!

Draw around the end of a toilet paper tube in the center of a small paper plate.

Pierce center of plate with scissors and cut slits to the edge all the way around the circle.

Cover toilet paper tube with gold foil and then glue plate to top of the tube by folding cuts into the center of the tube. (This takes a generous amount of glue stick)

Stuff red and orange tissue paper into the center of the tube.

Let the games begin!

    Super cute! I would have loved to use your cookie idea when I did my little one’s Olympic theme birthday party in ’08 during the Beijing games.

    This is a great idea! I would though, use a dab of frosting to “glue” the foil together instead of hot glue just to be more careful. Very cute!
