Making a snow man can be great fun. Here's how it's done.

making snowman.gif (3016 bytes)

1.  Get a small ball of snow and role it into a ball.

2.  Place this snowball on the ground and roll it along so it can gather more snow (this is for the body).

3.  Stop rolling the snow ball once it's around 3 times the size of a basket ball, and start to make a new snowball for the head.

4.  Once the head is around a basket ball size place it on top of the body.

5.  Finally use a carrot for the snowman's nose, small stones to create its eyes, mouth and coat buttons, small sticks for its arms and a hat and scarf just to keep the snowman warm!!

Join the snow ball fight!

Throwing snowballs at one another can be great fun but make sure there are no stones or sticks caught in the snowball as they could seriously injure someone.

Snow tobogganing

If you don't have your own toboggan you can always make a temporary one by using a large plastic bag (e.g. a fertiliser bag).  Here's how it's done.

The most popular form of skiing is downhill skiing in which the skier glides swiftly down steep mountain runs.  Other forms of skiing include cross-country skiing and ski-jumping.  Skiing developed as a sport around 1850 in Norway.
