First we made our own Olympic medals (I got the idea here). We made some salt dough, which is just 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of salt, and about 3/4 cup water. This made more dough than we needed for our medals so I bet you could cut the recipe in half and still have plenty of dough.
Our salt dough. It has a texture very similar to play dough.
We used magnetic number to imprint our medals

Our finished medals.
Next we made our version of the Olympic torch. I took a wrapping paper tube and cut it in half. I creased one end of the tube to look like a triangle because that is how the London Olympic torch is shaped. The 3 sides of the triangle represent the 3 times the Olympics have been held in London.
I sprayed the tubes with a quick drying primer to make it easier to paint.
