One of my favorite crafts for Sports Day are the gold medals we make. For this craft I use child-safe, air dry clay that you can find in any local arts and craft store. We start by giving each child a small ball of clay that they push into a flat circle. After, they take a number "1" stamp and push it into the middle of the clay to make the impression. Once the clay dries completely the children paint the medals with gold paint and I add the ribbons.
The baseball bat is always my favorite. The kids use yarn to glue onto the baseball and color in the bat with the brown crayon. So simple yet such a cute craft.
