6 Things You Can Do with the New Giant Caldecott Medals

The ALA Store is now selling giant Caldecott Medals (made of cardstock, not bronze). Sure, you could use them for a handsome display or helpful hanging signage, but what fun is that?!

Here are a few ideas for the more adventurous Giant Caldecott Medal owners out there.

Your Giant Caldecott can be . . .


. . . an extraordinary prank sun.


. . . a striking clock.


. . . an impressive pizza serving platter.


. . . a dramatic spare tire.


. . . a splendid shield.


. . . an imposing necklace medallion.

Or, yeah, I suppose you could use it for your Mock Caldecott bulletin board.

The others are more fun, though.
