International Youth Day Award Art Activity

child-day

August 12th marks International Youth Day. Celebrate the day by honoring a special young person in your household, school, or community. And how can you honor this person? Start with a youth award.

If you’re not sure where to start, check out these easy how-to directions for making your own individualized award.

Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard
  • Card stock paper
  • Scissors
  • Markers or pens
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Gold glitter
  • A photo of the person who is honored

How-To Steps

  1. Glue a piece of white or light-colored card stock paper onto the cardboard. Make sure the cardboard is at least two inches larger than the paper on each side.
  2. Add glue to the cardboard border. If needed, use a paintbrush to spread the glue out.
  3. Sprinkle gold glitter on the glue and shake off the excess.
  4. Write something special about the child who you are honoring on the card stock paper. Include the child’s name and the date of the holiday (with the year).
  5. Glue the child’s photo to the card stock.
  6. Let the award dry.

If the glitter flakes off, paint another layer of clear-drying glue over it. Wait for the first layer of glitter-glue to dry completely before you attempt this step.
