Salt dough was a common craft medium in the 60's and 70's when I was in school. There was always a student or two who make salt dough maps for a major project. These snow people are absolutely adorable. This will be another enjoyable project to do with the grands in my family. It's great to gather them around a table and see them working so hard at making a craft that they can be proud of. Do you have family craft times with the kids or grandkids?

What adorable little snowmen. I remember making salt dough in school when I was a child. This is simple and inexpensive. It is safe for the kids to get involved in making if a grown up handles the baking part of it. I remember not having to bake them. Will this recipe air dry as well, or am I thinking of a different recipe? I do know thickness mattered for drying though, so maybe because these are balls, baking is needed to prevent mold and cracking.

I was taught to make and use salt dough for fun projects in 1st grade, many, many years ago. I still have the salt dough wreath I made back then for our Christmas tree. This is a great way to spend time with your kids or grandkids and to create more than just memories.

This brings back a lot of happy memories. I made these with my son 30 years ago. I gave them to him to use on his tree when he got married and started having a family. Now I can make them with my grand kids. It's easy, fun and inexpensive!

Seeing these adorable and cheery snowmen makes me want to start crafting with salt dough again. I have not done so in years. This project would be a great start. Too cute.

I have worked with salt dough before and found it easy to work with. It is great to do with children because it is non-toxic. As it said in the instructions it is non-edible but won't hurt the child if they do get curious. The taste will put them off. It is a two day process but the end result is so worth it. You won't see these in the stores. And you add your own personal touches. I collect snowmen so this will be perfect. Thank you.

This family of snowmen are absolutely adorable! I'm adding these folks onto my decor for January at my house. They look like they'd be the perfect guests!!! I was wondering about some of the questions that Weberme asked so I did some research and someone on line said to apply a couple of coatings of clear acrylic coating to the salt dough items. Another person added that they had salt dough ornaments from the 1960s. The key thing seems to be that they are well sealed.

Never seen or heard of these before and never heard of salt dough. These little guys are so cute. Does the dough get hard? How long do they last? Will the heat melt them? I am so excited to see this tutorial and would love to make some. Such a simple recipe to make the salt dough and you can use things around the house to make the snowmans face and clothes. Lets make some and see some pictures. So glad I found this tutorial.
