I have to preface this post with an apology.

I am sorry for the glitter… It is completely optional, but it definitely gives the medal a little extra pa-zaz!

But I know, I know! Glitter is the herpes of arts and crafts! Every time you think you have gotten rid of it, it reappears!

But in the words of sweet Rea, “I really, really love it. It’s so sparkly!”

Anywho, this activity will work on the letter M and will leave your Lil’ with a beautiful gold medal!
