This girl is building a snow person.

What you do:    

  1. Make a large snowball.
  2. Roll it on the ground to pick up more snow.
  3. Pack snow around the bottom of your large snowball to stop it from rolling.
  4. Make a medium snowball for the body.
  5. Lift it onto the large snowball. Use more snow to stick the two snowballs together.
  6. Make a small snowball for the head.
  7. Lift the head onto the body. Use more snow to stick the head to the body.
  8. Add eyes, a nose and a mouth to the face. Use buttons or stones and a carrot. You can even add stick arms, a hat and a scarf!
