Given the weather, we thought we'd reshare the foolproof snowman-building piece that was included in the Miscellany section of Issue 4 – follow these simple steps and you'll have a snowman who’ll still be making onlookers smile long after the thaw.
1. Test that your snow is ‘sticky’. Icy or fluffy snow won’t work as well.
2. Make a snowball. Roll it along the ground until it’s a snowboulder – this is your snowman’s pudgy lower body, so a three-feet diameter is good.
3. Craft a smaller boulder for the torso and hoik it into place, using a ramp if necessary.
4. Finally, the head. Pack all three sections tight, then skewer him from head down with a long stick.
5. Use carrots, pebbles etc for facial features and dress in last Christmas’s unwanted hat-and-scarf set.
If you do make a snowman (snowlady, snowdog, snowcat or anything else!), we'd love you to post your pictures onto our Facebook wall!
