How to make colourful salt dough eggs

  • Step 1: Prep and mix
    Pre-heat the oven and mix 1 cup of plain flour (250g) and half a cup of salt (125g) in a large bowl. Add half a cup of water (125g) and stir until it comes together into a ball.

  • Steps 2 & 3: Shape and bake
    Roll out your dough and cut into eggs. Make a hole at the top to thread ribbon through. Place onto a non-stick tray and pop them into the oven for 2-3 hours or until solid.

  • Step four: Time to decorate!
    Try a rainbow, stripes, or even paint a bunny onto it! Seal with PVA glue and wait for it to dry. Then pop a ribbon through the hole and hang up around your home!
