Every season brings its own joys, but there’s no time of year more fun than the very first snowfall! Snowballs is full of great ideas for making snowmen, snowwomen, snowkids — and even snowpets — by rolling up balls of snow, packing them together, and adding such household goodies as seeds, nuts, raisins and corn. The book even comes with a recipe for making indoor snowmen out of popcorn balls... and neat scientific information about how snow is made, and why it clumps together!
