If you’re in the Northeast today, and stuck home with kids watching the fluffy stuff come down, you might take a minute to review these instructions on how to build a snow [person].
OK, it’s really not that hard, and most of us don’t need written instructions. I like the tip about spraying the snowperson with water, though, colored or otherwise, to help it hold together. It’s important to start with “packing” snow in the first place, too. The powdery stuff that skiiers love won’t form an adequate ball.
If the snow stops coming down before our son’s naptime, we’re going to try and make two snowwomen and a little snowboy. I’ll blog about it once my hands thaw out.
[Update: Snow was too powdery to form balls. Had to settle for sliding down our hill.]
