How to Build a LEGO® Snowman

Got LEGO®s?  Here are some building instructions for creating a LEGO® snowman.  This snowman is part of our Five Lego Christmas Projects, but since this one requires more steps to build, it gets its own post.

How to Build a Lego Snowman

Step 1: Start with a flat 2 x 4 brick.

    Thanks for these instructions! We had fun making this on a rainy day. A robust collection of Legos is required if you want all of the exact parts. We had to make due with a few random non-white pieces; we just shoved them in the back. I can't wait to try some other things, like the nativity!
    Your blog looks like a lot of fun, just up our alley (two boys, ages 4 & 6).

      This is a fantastic activity but why is it for boys?

        I thought similar, but assume it's based on her family world view where she has boys so activities are for boys, and may have some suitable for girls as well?
