Medallion "Snowflakes"

from 1 year 6 months to 3 years

Offer your kid to make cute medallions out of salt dough - you can decorate your home with the pretty crafts or just give them as gifts to friends and relatives!

Start with making salt dough.


  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 cup of flour

Add the 1/2 cup of salt and 1 cup of flour to a bowl, and stir in the water adding it slowly. You may not need all of the water. You want the dough to be dry. If it gets sticky add more flour. Knead the dough and then roll out and use as you want.

Make snowflakes with holes:

Once you have made the shapes you want then you need to dry them so you can paint them... Traditionally salt dough is dried in the oven which takes about 3 hours at a low heat so they don’t burn. But instead, you can swap your oven for a microwave and zap them for 3 mins.

So, if you wish to color your medallions, you'll also need:

  • acrylic paints;
  • brush and jar of water;
  • jute rope.


Make photos of the process, upload to the App. Write whether your little one liked the idea.
