Making Indoor Snowmen

Shannon had the brilliant idea to make indoor snowmen, so Libby and I brought in a big bowl of snow and we spent a little while creating snowmen. I think everyone had a great time playing with snow without getting cold!

A few things we learned:

  • Put a towel down on the table before going outside to get the snow.
  • You can try to use an ice cream scoop, but if the snow is too wet it won't work as well as your hands.
  • Use toothpicks stuck into each snowball to make sure they don't topple over while decorating.
  • All sorts of kitchen items can be used to decorate - we used peppercorns for buttons and the smile and a chocolate-covered sunflower seed for his nose. Twigs from outside were used for his arms.
