What You’ll Need:

• snow (and plenty of it!)

• twigs

• seed heads

• pinecones

• bark

• small stones

Snow Bear

1. Roll a gi­ant snow­ball. This will be the bear’s body.

2. Make another snow­ball, but make it more of an up­right oval shape. This will be its head!

3. Form two rounded ears with snow at the top of the head.

4. For eyes, use stones, seed heads or pieces of pine cone.

5. Just be­low the two eyes, add a small rounded snow­ball for the muz­zle. Then place one round stone for the nose.

6. Add a cou­ple of twigs for arms.

Snow Por­cu­pine

1. In­stead of a round snow­ball, roll a snow­ball that looks more like an oval shape.

2. Place it length­wise on the ground. This will be the por­cu­pine’s body. 3. If there’s one end that’s a bit more pointed than the other, use that bit for the por­cu­pine’s face. For eyes, use stones, seed heads or pieces of pine cone.

4. Use a lot of small twigs for the por­cu­pine’s quills. Make sure the twigs point away from its head.

5. You can also add a flat tail where the por­cu­pine’s back­side would be us­ing bark.

Snow Rab­bit

1. In­stead of a round snow­ball, roll a snow­ball that looks more like an oval shape.

2. Place it length­wise on the ground. This will be the rab­bit’s body.

3. Make two smaller and longer oval shapes out of snow and at­tach these to the body. These will be the rab­bit’s ears.

4. Don’t for­get to add eyes and a nose us­ing stones or seed heads.

5. If you want, you can add paws along its sides us­ing snow too!
