Another Epic Fail!

Now, what’s Grandma doing?

We had our first big snow of the winter but you were not feeling very good which meant that going outside to experience it was completely out of the question.  Still, I thought that I could bring some of that snow to you so that you could touch it at least.  So in the middle of the night, I had this idea that I could just bring in a little snow and let you watch as I built a little snowman.  I even tried to think of little things that could serve as eyes, mouth, hat, and buttons.  You know, the way a typical snowman should look.

I was excited!  Your mom…not so much, but I was undeterred.

First the snow.

Then the ingredients.

Then I tried to form the snow into a snowman but there was one problem:  the snow wouldn’t pack!  It was that light kind of snow that just doesn’t work well for snowman building.  I hadn’t even considered this issue.  I tried and tried to form a ball but just couldn’t get it to hold.  You were getting tired of just sitting there watching me so I gave you a little bit of snow to play with – your first science experiment: what happens to snow when you hold it in your hand for a few seconds?

Well, after adding a little water to this snow mess, I was finally able to get it to stand upright…a little.

IMG_7249When your mom saw it, though, she just laughed.  Your Auntie E called it a “Pinterest Fail”.  One thing we all decided was that it didn’t look anything at all like a snowman.

It looked more like Ursala from Little Mermaid.

I don’t know.  You decide!
