It was a really warm day with lots of wet snow that was perfect for making snow balls. Make sure that you have an excellent pair of gloves, or at least two or three cheap pairs to change into during this project!
Step 1: Giant Snow Pile
Step 2: Add the Legs
Make the bottoms of these columns giant as to look like paws.
Add more snow to the head so that it is not too big or small.
***** It's a good idea to stand back from your masterpiece and take a good look at it every now and then. That way you can tell if you have any spots that need more/less snow*****
Step 3: Finishing Touches
****** It is necessary to add the snowballs all around the top of the head like earmuffs because this adds a space for the eyes to rest and it creates the ears ******
The nose and eyes were just very compacted snowballs that were slammed into place.
