Family has loads of fun making funny snowman

My husband and I enjoy building a snowman with our two children, Kristy and Nicholas. It is most fun when we get inventive. Since no one keeps coal around any more, last year we used black plastic spoons to make the eyes.

We broke off small branches from the trees to use for arms. The kids laughed when we put mittens on the end of the branches to give the snowman hands. We used spray paint to make a big, funny mouth, and we tied a jacket around his neck to look like a muffler.

We always build the snowman near the road, because the kids want the drivers to see it as they go by.
