It turns out making a snowman isn’t as easy as it looks! This was the combined effort of four Aussies who had neither the knowledge or patience to build an impressive snowman.

He was built during our holiday in Sapporo and none of us had experienced heavy snow before. So heavy in fact we had two of our flights cancelled! The first couple of days we were there it was powdery and this was when we attempted the snowman.

Are you supposed to make two separate balls and roll one on top of the other? Because ours kept falling apart!

I think the little stick arms and beanie saves it though, it makes it look less like a boob and more like a snowman (seen here posing with the boyfriend :])
