Cupid’s Coasters

Salt Coasters (5)

These salt dough coasters are a fun project and they make a pretty gift. In other words, a fantastic way for kids to say ‘I love you’ to any relatives or friends.

To start, Travis needed to make sure our dough ended up pink, which meant he counted out 8 drops of red food coloring into 3/4 cup water.

In a bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, and the red water; stir to form a dough, and then knead until smooth.

I would use a touch less flour next time, as the dough was quite dry and a little crumbly.  Roll it out until a 1/4-inch thick and use a 4-inch circle cookie cutter to cut out shapes.

I showed Travis how to drag a toothpick through the dough to make designs. It was a bit tough for him, but after some frustration, we had circles marker with hearts and arrows (to represent Cupid’s arrow).

Bake at 250 degrees F for 2 hours. Let cool completely, then use at home or wrap up for a gift!
