MAD (Mindie, Adam, Alex, David) Family Fun is the result of friends and family asking "How do you find so much fun stuff to do?" So, I decided to share with everyone! There are no BIG secrets involved, I promise. I just have a knack for finding fun and now I want to share it with you!
MAD Family Fun is a place to find activities, events and ideas to have more fun with your family. Enjoy!

Olympic Medals Craft
What Olympics is complete without medals!?!? So today we made our own out of things we had and so can you. Use your imagination and use things you already have at home. No glitter? Use crayons. No yarn, use a shoe string. Ask your children to find things to make the medals out of and you might be surprised how creative they can be! Here is how we did ours....
First you need something round for the medal. We used lids from baby formula cans, but you could use paper plates or lids from play-doh cans.
After using a hole punch to make our holes we added a little glue and glitter. They're medals so they had to shine! We had some plastic numbers that we covered in glitter and glued on for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. A quick piece of yarn and our medals are ready for awarding!
