Salt Dough Medals

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water

Preheat Oven to 325°
Put the floor and salt into a mixing bowl and mix with a wooden spoon. Mix in the water a
little at a time until the mixture forms a ball of dough. Sprinkle some extra floor onto your
work surface and put the dough in the center. Roll out the dough until it is a 1/4” think. Cut out
circles with a biscuit cutter, round cookie cutter, or the top of a glass. Use a straw to put a hole in
the top edge of the medal for the ribbon to go through later. Place the medals on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool. Once cooled put the medals on newspaper and paint with poster
paints. When the paint dries, string ribbon through the hole to finish the medal.
