How to make a snowman

Monday, October 29, 2007
Beside the Christmas decorations indoors, one important part of the Christmas is making of the snowman, Frosty! Christmas time comes and if it's a white Christmas, the best part is children making snowmen outside their house. I remember how my mom used to make me take all the precautions before spending hours in the snow so that I won't get sick during the celebrations.

Here some tips for making the snowman :
* The best time to build a snowman is usually in the next warmest afternoon directly following a snowfall with a sufficient amount of snow.

* It is impossible to make a snowball by the powdered snow. To make the snowball the powdered snow has to be near its melting point and be compact. Start making small balls and get rolling.

* To keep the ball round vary the direction while rolling the ball. A traditional snowman has a base, center and head. Before stacking the snowballs, use your hands to level a flatter side on both the base snowball and the one that will rest on top. This way, the snowball is more likely to balance. After the snowball is balanced, you may secure it by packing around the seam with additional snow.
