GATHER YOUR TOOLS:
Cabarrus County doesn’t usually get much snow, but you never know when the big ones will come, so be prepared. Buckets or containers for packing snow into large shapes. Insulated gloves for your hands. Water containers to pour over the snow to make it stick together. Food coloring in a spray bottle if you want to color the snow. Carrots, charcoal pieces, pine cones, small tree branches, old hats, gloves or scarves. Use an ice scraper, spackling tool, wooden spoons, shovels and other kitchen utensils to carve the snow and ice. Snowmen, like people come in different shapes and sizes – have fun – be creative.
