How To Make Salt Dough Ice-Lollies

by Jessica Amey

These salt dough ice-lollies are so much fun to make! They grip to the sticks when drying so that the end result is ice-lollies that are perfect for pretend play.

Earlier in the week we made these salt dough Ice Creams and this is what we did with the leftover dough.

You will need:
– Salt Dough (see link above for recipe)
– Wooden lolly sticks
– Mod Podge
– Acrylic paint
– Glitter

We formed the salt dough around the sticks then put them in the oven at 50 degree C to dry out for a few hours. If it was a hot day you could put them outside.


Once they had dried, something which can take a fair old while, we sealed them with a layer of Mod Podge to stop them absorbing any moisture from the paint.

Then we painted them with acrylic paint.


Cherry is obsessed with glitter so she sprinkled her with lots of it. If you add a layer of Mod Podge on top of the glitter then it stops it from falling off everywhere.





So not only are these fun to make but they also create something you can keep and play with afterwards, for next to nothing.
