Before building make sure you pick out an area that has the right amount (and right kind) of snow. You’ll want somewhere flat and open.

Start Small

Begin by tightly packing a small ball of snow. Wetter snow usually sticks better so it’s good to build snowman on warmer days.

Get Rollin’!

Roll your snow ball around the yard making sure you pack it in as you go. Go as big as you can!

Build It Up

Repeat the rolling process with smaller balls. Get some help to put them on top. Most people do 3 snowballs but don’t be afraid to try more.

The most important part is to make your snowman yours. Decorate him with whatever you can find. Sticks and coal are a classic but try something different.

You’re done! You’ve built your very own snowman. There’s no wrong way to build or decorate a snowman, the most important part is that you have fun!
