Winter is here and the snow is falling,  while snowmen are garnishing neighbors lawns.  This Instructable was inspired to accommodate  winter loving, skiing loving, snow loving people who drive or fly 1000's of miles to greet the snow.  Sometimes when they can't get away to play in the snow , they need an alternative that will satisfy their needs. Let's play in the snow!

Picture of Please Note
  • This is the first sand snowman that I have made.  He is very fragile. The idea is to make him, place him in the jar, seal the jar, and take pictures as carefully as you can.  After that it can be expected that he will crumble.  While you are working with him; it is important to be very careful not to move him too much until after the pictures are taken.  He is
  • supposed to arrive in pieces. Then the addressee will go to your website, Instructables, or receive an email with pictures of him before he melted.
