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.
