You Will Need
- Warm winter clothes
- Sticks and branches
- A carrot
- Buttons or charcoal
- A little imagination
Let snow settle
Wait for the snow to settle. It should be packing snow, not fresh powder.
Form snow into ball
Using gloved hands, gather snow and form it into a ball. Continue adding snow to the ball until it is too large to hold.
Slowly roll the snowball away from you, letting snow accumulate on the outside of the ball. Continue packing the new snow onto the ball with your hands.
When the ball reaches the size that you want for the base, move the ball to wherever you want your snowman to stand.
Make smaller ball
Make another ball of snow and build it up like you did the first. This ball should end up slightly smaller than the first one.
Place 2nd ball on 1st
Place the second ball on top of the first.
Create 3rd ball
Create a third ball and place it on top of the first two. Now you have your basic snowman.
Give snowman arms
Give your snowman arms with sticks or branches.
Make a face
Make a face using a carrot for a nose and buttons or charcoal for the eyes and mouth.
Customize with whatever you choose to give your snowman personality.
