Did you know you can have the wrong kind of snow? For building a snowman that is!
Light, powdery snow is no good for snowmen. It doesn’t stick and it won’t roll.
Our first couple of snowfalls this year were of the powdery kind and left us with two disappointed children when their attempts to build snowmen failed.
So, when we finally had some sticky snow, it was time to get outside and build that snowman!
First we needed to roll some big snowballs…
After successfully making three big snowballs mummy had to lift them into a snowman shaped pile. I can tell you now, they were heavy!
Once the basic shape was ready it was time to fill in the gaps and make sure the balls were firmly stuck together…
And of course, no snowman is complete without a face, arms and some buttons :)
One impressive, child sized snowman and two very happy children. Who named it Carol.
