How to build the perfect snowman!

Runners dressed as snowmenOh, the weather outside might be frightful, but the WALLY team is finding it delightful! This past weekend, we took a trip down to Vancouver, WA for the annual Hot Buttered Run at Esther Short Park. Hundreds of runners, all dressed up in holiday themed costumes warmed up their morning with a run around the city. We met plenty of First Snowflake Freakout Ladies and even some dressed up as snowmen!  

It’s rare when the Pacific Northwest turns into a Winter Wonderland but it’s been known to happen! With the winter season coming up, the WALLY team wants to make sure you’re prepared for when the snow comes! Of course, there’s many responsibilities that come with the snow – like winterizing your property, but there’s also plenty of fun to be had, as well!

The WALLY team has the answers on how to build the perfect snowman and what you’ll need.

  1. Snow, of course!: You can’t build a snowman without the base of which you’ll need, snow…and lots of it! Start by gathering snow into a ball, then roll it around on the ground, making sure to keep its perfectly round shape as big as you’d like!

  2. Snowman accessories: To make your snowman come to life, you’ll need sticks for arms, buttons for its belly, eyes and mouth, a carrot for its nose and a top hat and scarf to keep it warm! You can even give it a name like Frosty or Mr. Snow.

  3. Lots of hot chocolate: You’ll need to warm yourself up after spending time playing in the cold outside. Hot chocolate is easy to make! Add a splash of milk and a small handful of marshmallows to really make it a delightful, warm treat!

We hope these fun snowmen building tips will help you out this winter. Now, we must ask…”Do you want to build a snowman?”
