Picture of How to Build a Snow Fort

Early childhood memories often include the satisfaction of playing with a fresh snowfall making snow angels, throwing snow balls, and seeing who could build the larger snowman. If you want to feel a little nostalgic then this Instructable is for you. We will add one more snow creation to that list by describing how to build your own snow fort!

Step 1: Safety and Equipment

Picture of Safety and Equipment
Since a prerequisite of snow fort construction is snow, it is going to be cold outside. That means wear proper winter attire, which includes
1. hats,
2. insulated and waterproof gloves,
3. winter coats,
4. scarves,
5. face masks,
6. snow pants,
7. snow boots, and
8. extra layers on your feet especially. You will also require a shovel or similar scooping tool. The early stages of frostbite are called “frost nips” and most likely occur on your toes;  they are marked by discolored yellow skin and an extreme burning sensation when warmed. It is highly recommended you do not work alone or sit alone in a snow fort. When a snow collapses, it is not very audible and somebody trapped in a caved-in fort could be at risk of suffocating if the weight is too great.
