Watching the Snowman on TV had been somewhat of a tradition from when i was younger, and the sequel the Snowman and Snowdog will be shown on Channel 4 again this Christmas.
The Snowman book has seen over 4 million copies sold worldwide and this year we have been sent a deluxe copy of the Classic story by Raymond Briggs.This hardback book is packed with stunning illustrations and is made memorable with the absence of words as in the film.
The boys enjoyed studying the pictures and recreating the story and telling it using their own words and descriptions. The book has a RRP of £12.99 and would make a great gift that can be shared with children young and old year after year.
We were also sent some adorable Snowman and Snowdog cookie cutters to assist us with our bake off creations. This little set is available from John Lewis (£3.50)
The boys couldn't wait to get started and after putting together a basic vanilla biscuit dough they then got to work on the rolling and the cutting.
Once the biscuits were cooled we melted some white chocolate and spread all over the Snowman and Snowdog biscuits, next up was the decoration and under strict guidance and assistance from Little Man we used icing pensand edible decorations to create our own Snowman and Snowdog biscuits.
We also plan to use our cutters to create salt dough decoration for the tree and also for sandwiches to create a festive Snowman inspired pack lunch.
Tomorrow the blog tour heads over to YummyMummyinTraining so why not head over there for some more Snowman and Snowdog themed treats
