Highlight of the Month

Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Did you ever build a snowman?  Did it make you wonder who built the first one?  No one really knows who built the first snowman.  Snow has been around forever, but have snowmen?  Since snow melts, we have no hard and fast evidence of ancient snowmen.   People have always used art to make pictures of themselves.  There snowmanare pictures of people on ancient cave drawings or on old amulets of clay and stone.  It is possible that ancient peoples used snow as another way to make art that looked like themselves.  What we do know is that snowmen have been around longer than all of us.  The Victorians used snowmen on thousands of things--advertisements, holiday victorian girls and snowmancards, paintings, etc.  So that makes snowmen at least 100 years old. 

The biggest question for today's snowmen is how do you build yours?  Do you roll snowman standing on headthree balls of different sizes or do you make a huge pile of snow and carve a snowman into it?  What do you use to decorate your snowman?  Carrot noses always seem to work for  a snowman.  Maybe you dress yours up with a fancy hat or some ski poles.  Perhaps you use rocks or bottle caps for eyes.  The most important part is just to have fun while you are making it.
