I found several recipes for the dough online. We used:
2 cups AP flour
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups (give or take) cool water
extra flour - half a cup or so
I also added a bit of glitter and tiny glass beads for a snow-like effect. I couldn't really tell it was there in the cooked ornaments, so I either used too little or it just didn't work.
Anyways, put the ingredients in a big bowl and mix with hands. No pictures of this, but I divided the recipe equally and let each girl mix her own. If it was too sticky we added a little more flour.
Have the girls pose with their favorites....
Here's the group....
Here's some closeups.....
Honestly, I wonder if my girls have even SEEN snowmen!!
* I completely forgot to do this, but this is how you SHOULD make hangers for your snowmen. Take a metal paperclip and pull the inner loop out from the outer loop so it makes a giant "S". It should break but if not, wiggle it back and forth until you have two 3/4 oval shapes. Press the ends of the clip into the back of the snowman heads BEFORE YOU BAKE THEM somewhere near the top center of the back of his head. Put it in there deep so you only have about 1/4" of the loop sticking out. Picture an upside-down "U" shape. Bake that in the head and then string some ribbon, yarn, string, etc. to hang it on your tree.
I'm pretty sure any family members who read this will be seeing these snowmen again...
