This year Nico is 2 and flipping over snow, he was in awe the first time it snowed this year It was so neat to seem him so happy repeating: “neige, neige, neige” (snow in french) over and over again with his happy little voice. Little did we know he would have to beg the sky for more snow just 2 days later after it all melted and that for 2 weeks, broke our hearts to hear him so sad, but not much we could do. So today when it started snowing it reminded me of that moment and I decided to post his first snowman (moose) ever. Also a friend blogger is looking for animal related things so I figured I’d help her out too
Mommy helped putting the balls on top of each other, he helped pack snow to hold it together. Then we needed something for the face as this was an impromptu snowman, I didn’t have anything outside with me and didn’t want to leave him outside by himself so we used things outside, there still were some leaves on the ground and after rolling all that snow we could see them again so we made holes in the face, stuffed them with leafs and voilà we had a face! Got some branches from the dead lilac tree and made arms, the first one I took looked like an antler so I asked him if he wanted to make a moose like our bank and he said yes, so he put the branches on the head with lift support from mommy and he put in the arms and we were done.
Who says you can only make snowmen out of snow, why not animals? It’s snowing as I type so after nap time if he’s in the mood, we’ll go out and see what else we can whip up. Also, just goes to show you, you don’t need a fancy snowman kit at 10$ or anything but nature to make a pretty cool snowman that turned into a moose
