Now divide the smaller ball of dough into pieces and roll each one into a sausage shape. This is your snail body
Stick the body to the shell by brushing water on the join and press together.

Add a raisin for an eye

Place your snails carefully on a greased baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes at 200 degrees or until golden.

Whilst the snails are baking, fill a sink with lots of bubbles and warm water and let the little ones do the washing up.
