Salt Dough Recipe:
2 cup salt
2 cup plain (all purpose) flour
1 1/2 cups warm water
Combine the flour and salt in a bowl, then add the water gradually. Knead the mixture until it becomes a dough-like consistency. It will feel very grainy because of the high salt content, but that's fine. If still too sticky add a touch more flour, if it won't hold together well then more water, a teaspoon at a time.
Roll out and cut with a cookie cutter.
Use a straw to make a hole for the ribbon to be threaded through after baking.
Press a star shape or number onto your circle of dough.
Cook at 210 degrees for 3 hours. Flip them over half way through cooking.
If they feel soft, continue cooking them in the oven.
Once cooled, spray paint them gold.
After they have dried, thread your ribbon through the hole.
All done! Now they are ready for your Olympic Athletes.
