Nanny Anita’s Mothering Sunday Hand or Foot Medallions

These hand and foot medallions made from salt dough.  They make a great activity to do with the kids, and a beautiful gift for any mother this mother’s day.

You will need for the salt dough:

  • 1cup/128g of plain flour
  • 1 cup/128g of fine salt
  • 1/2 cup of warm water

Combine all the ingredients and mix together until you have formed a dough. If it is too sticky add a little bit more flour.  Likewise if it is too dry add a touch more water. Kneed your dough out until you get a nice smooth texture, this may take a bit of time.

To make your medallion form into a flat circle that will be big enough to fit your child’s hand or foot. To create a nice smooth, flat circle try making it on a plate and then flipping it onto some foil or baking parchment. When I did this I found that it would often get stuck and ruin the medallion, if that happens try sprinkling some flour onto the plate.

Get your child to use their hand or foot and press straight down onto the medallion, they will need to do it quite hard.

To bake it pop it in the oven on 100 C for 2-3 hours. Check the bottom of it to see it it has dried out. If not turn it over and return to the oven for another 2 hours. Make sure the temperature isn’t too high or it will cause the dough to rise.  Remember the thicker to medallion is the longer it will take to bake.
