Step 1: Fill Container
Fill the container with snow. Compact it in.
Step 2: Start by Laying the Horseshoe Shape With the Filled Snow Container.
Start by laying the horseshoe shape with the filled snow container Then start brick layering the second layer on top of that. Move it towards the center approximately 1/4 the size of your block.
Step 3: Continue Brick Layering
Continue brick layering until you put the last one on top. We sprayed some of it with red food coloring for fun. This took us a total of 3 days to build.

It was warmer inside then it was outside for sure.
