How To Build A Snowman

How To Build A SnowmanReady to play in this year’s first major snowfall? Get out there and enjoy the fresh air and glistening snow as you sled, ski, snowboard, snow fight or make snowmen.

Here are some tips on how to build a snowman. After you have covered the basics, have fun giving Frosty his own personality and expressions, by placing the eyes, arms, mouth and other features in different positions.

  1. First of all, you will need good packing snow to build a snowman. Test to see if the snow can clump together easily and isn’t too wet.
  2. Pack a handful of snow into a snowball, and continue to add onto it and enlarge until it’s too big too hold.
  3. Then roll the snowball along the ground, allowing more snow to accumulate. Pack the loose snow all over the ball as you roll it forward, with your gloved hands.
  4. Continue to roll and pack the snowball until it is the size you want for the bottom of the snowman’s body.
  5. Follow the same process for the midsection and head. Traditionally, the bottom ball is biggest and the top is the smallest.
  6. Once you have all three stacked on top of each other, pack some extra snow between each layer to make them all stick together.
  7. If your snowman isn’t staying upright very well, place a stick down the center of the snowball sections to keep him erect.
  8. Now you can add arms, a hat or a plant for hair, coals and carrots for facial features, etc. If you use candy such as M&M’s for any of the features, keep in mind that the wetness of the snow will melt the candy and its color will drain all over the face.

And there you have it! Now that you know how to build a snowman, go out there and have some fun with Frosty!
