Step 1: Let snow settle Wait for the snow to settle. It should be packing snow, not fresh powder. Tip If you can make a decent snowball that stays intact in flight, the snow is ready. Step 2: Form snow into ball Using gloved hands, gather snow and form it into a ball. Continue adding snow to the ball until it is too large to hold. Step 3: Roll snowball Slowly roll the snowball away from you, letting snow accumulate on the outside of the ball. Continue packing the new snow onto the ball with your hands. Step 4: Position base When the ball reaches the size that you want for the base, move the ball to wherever you want your snowman to stand. Step 5: Make smaller ball Make another ball of snow and build it up like you did the first. This ball should end up slightly smaller than the first one. Step 6: Place 2nd ball on 1st Place the second ball on top of the first. Tip If the second ball won't stay on top, pack snow between the two balls—or push a long stick into the first snowball and slide the second one onto the stick. Step 7: Create 3rd ball Create a third ball and place it on top of the first two. Now you have your basic snowman. Step 8: Give snowman arms Give your snowman arms with sticks or branches. Step 9: Make a face Make a face using a carrot for a nose and buttons or charcoal for the eyes and mouth. Step 10: Customize Customize with whatever you choose to give your snowman personality. Did You Know? According to the song, Frosty the Snowman had a "button nose," but many depictions of him show a carrot.
