how to make a snowman:
1 generous helping of wet packing snow
1/4 cup of Round Nuts in the Shell
2 Larger Nuts
1 Large Carrot
2 Old Gloves or Mittens
1 Old Hat
2 Fallen Branches
1-4 Well Bundled Children
2 Scoops Imagination
1 Dash of Good Humor
May Substitute or add any of the following ingredients:
Scarf, Ear Muffs, Sunglasses, Acorns, Pine Cones
Makes 1 serving, may last several days
Preheat a winter’s day to 32 degrees.
Firmly pack a ball of snow between your two hands and place upon the ground. Continue to roll on snow covered ground until the ball gathers enough snow to measure about 3 feet. This form the base of your snowman.
Roll and shape two additional snowballs. The first will be approximately one foot in diameter and the second will be two feet. Place the second largest ball on top of the base. The smallest is the head and goes on top.
Press in the smaller nuts to form the teeth. To give the snowman a smile, nuts should be placed on the outer corners of the mouth. Center a carrot above the mouth for the nose. Push in the larger end with the pointed end out. The two largest nuts form the eyes and are to be placed above the carrot nose.
Attach fallen branches to the middle ball of snow on either side of the arms. Add gloves or mittens on both ends of the sticks. Top him off with an old hat and sprinkle with laughter. Toss in a brief snowmall fight for excitement. Garnish with seeds on top of hat and scatter corn around snowman for additional enjoyment.
