St Patrick’s Day is a while away but that didn’t stop us from making some salt dough Leprechaun gold coins. I’ve wanted to try making our own salt dough for ages and I found a great recipe for it over on RainyDayMum which I have adapted slightly.
How to make salt dough coins:
200g plain flour
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together to form a dough. I turned it out on to a lightly floured board and let my son roll it out and cut out about 20 coins using a cookie cutter.
We placed them on a sheet of grease proof paper and I cooked them in batches of 5 on more grease proof paper in the microwave. We have a 1000w microwave and cooked them for 2 minute on each side and left them to cool on a wire rack.
We painted our leprechaun gold with a variety of colours of acrylic paints before leaving them to dry. Fun no-cook salt dough ornaments. Now we just need to find a rainbow 🙂
See how we used our salt dough Leprechaun gold to make a pot of gold at the end of the (handprint) rainbow.
