Teach your kids the critical snowman-building skills necessary to succeed at life!
Be A Winner. Build a Snowman!
The first remarkable entry is from Barb at When Morning Breaks - who has used local rain as her medium:
Then, of course, there’s my Marshmallow Snowman – a result of being snow-deprived around these parts:
And, here’s Contestant #3: Elephants Child has created what she is describing as a ‘Feminist’ snow WOMAN! Who has apparently burned her bra (she’ll regret that decision in a few years, when her snowboobs lose their battle with gravity). Those fluttering eyelashes will be hard for the male snowmen to compete with.
Darla, of “She’s a Maineiac” fame has just entered this little group of mini (and maybe bloody) snowmen”
Those poor little baby snowmen don’t look like they stood a chance.
Here is an entire Snowman scene, courtesy of the artful and snacky Thoughts Appear:
How’s that for some Zombie Snowman on Snowman action! Plenty of sweets, a pair of St. Patricks Day themed SnowBall marshmallow bushes (I think) dead gummy bears who unfortunately got in the way of the action, and some Cadbury Easter Eggs, to get us all in the mood for Easter. Kudos to Thoughtsy for going all out and crafting an entire snowman scene, which you can read more about in her post here.
Just a few more days for your last desperate entries, as it will now close on March 31st…
