We enjoyed making our own decorative stamped clay lids
and decided to make our own gold coins in the same way. The coins are chunky and heavy so make great pirate treasure.
: 20 minutes plus drying time
: Any age
Small lids (e.g. milk bottle lids or miniature jam jar lids)
Number or picture to stamp in (we used a cardboard number but a fridge magnet number or other rubber stamp would work well)
We used milk bottle lids for our coins
Press air drying clay into the lid until it is flush with the top of the lid.
Press a number or other rubber stamp picture into the top of the clay.
Allow to dry for around 24 hours.
Your pirate treasure is now ready!
