Line up three styrofoam balls in either ascending or descending order, totally your choice. Just lie them down and do a quick measure with a bamboo skewer. You want your support to extend a little beneath the snowman, but do not want it to protrude through the head, so a measure the same as the three balls is about right. Make a mark, cut the skewer. Do this for as many snowmen as you were thinking about making. We made six, in three different lengths.
