The best snow sculptures were not created in the snow outside, but inside with paper and a pen by Bill Watterson. Some of his best strips were his snowman ones, and so after reading Calvin and Hobbes for so long; I decided to actually make one of the snowmen that Calvin made. You will enjoy making a snowman that was once seen by millions in the paper now in your yard. This is gauranteed to impress the neighborhood.
Step 1: Materials you will need
For this project you really don't need much, and it is easy to substitute items. We substituted some of the common items for things you would find at your workshop or at home.
For the tools we used:
- a pair of hands
The materials include:
- snow (obviously)
- carrots (we used orange markers instead)
- coal (we used electrical tape)
- pebbles or small rocks
Step 2: Making the headless snowman
First, you want to make the base of the snowman. It should be big, but remember that you will have to put the body on, and the body is almost as big as the base. For now, don't worry about making it look perfect, we will get to that later.
Step 3: Making the bowling snowman
Next, we have to make the snowman who is bowling. To start out, you want to make a base the same or similar size to the beheaded snowman. You want to have it end up in front of the beheaded snowman. Second, you want to make the body, which is a little smaller than the base. When you put it on the base, you want to make sure it is overhanging off the base, so it looks like the snowman is leaning forward. The head of the snowman should be slightly off center of the body. When you finish, the snowman should look like it is leaning forward.
