We have had a lot of snow and cold temperatures once again.  Trying to keep the boys happy can be a little challenging sometimes.  Jojo has come down with a bug so I thought it would be a great idea to keep them occupied with a craft.  I've been wanting to do this one for a while but just hadn't gotten around to it.
First we painted a couple of toothpicks orange for the snowman's nose.

Secondly we got the dough ready.

Then we put some sticks in for arms and the orange noses......

and then we placed them in the oven to cook!  You have to wait for 
the dough to cool off before you can paint them white and decorate 
them.  Naynay painted his yesterday but Jojo wasn't feeling too great
today so maybe tomorrow we can finish off his snowman!

I got the idea and recipe for the salt dough from this great blog!  I'm
also thinking that the dough would be great fun to make so many 
other things.  My boys love to paint so maybe for Valentines we can
make some hearts, for St. Patrick's Day some
get the idea!!!
