A good push

This eight-year-old boy is doing something kids from warm countries don't usually get to do. He is making a snowman.

A snowman is usually made by stacking three big balls of snow on top of one other. A big ball of snow goes on the bottom, a medium-sized one in the middle, and a small ball of snow goes on the top.

Then you give the snowman a face. Many people like to use pieces of coal or small stones for the eyes and mouth, and a carrot for the snowman's nose. Sometimes people even put clothes on snowmen, like scarves or hats.

It's a lot of fun, but as you can see, it's also hard work.
