11 Pictures of Snowmen + Creative Ideas for Making Your Own

10 Pictures of Snowmen - Plus ideas and inspiration for building and decorating a snowman with your kids!

Have your kids been building snowmen this winter?

Like many of you, we’ve had more than our usual snowfall recently and Maia and Daphne have been reveling in it as only kids can. They’ve been sledding, making snow angels, building (part of) an igloo, stomping around, tasting the snow, spying animal tracks in the snow, and, of course, building snowmen.

It’s been a snow extravaganza.

Here’s the snowman the kids built this past week. Small, well outfitted, and ready to catch all those winter butterflies we have around here.

Or snow woman, I should say. She had lovely miscanthus hair from the grasses in our garden and half of an evergreen leaf for a smile.

Apparently everyone in our neighborhood had the same idea (minus the miscanthus hair). As I took the short walk to the store on Friday, I saw no fewer than 15 snowmen. And that was just in the front yards. After I spied a snowman in a kayak, I knew I needed to start taking photos.

Here are 10 of those pictures of snowmen (with Maia’s snow woman above being #11):

The snowmen ranged from the traditional…

…to the not-so-traditional. This cool snowman dude is waving to passersby from a bench in the same yard as the two more-traditional looking snowmen in the photo above.

I love the icicle hair and twisty-branch arms on this snowman. (Maia and I decided that we’re going to give our snowman icicle hair the next time we build one!)

Here’s the kayaker snowman, wearing a helmet and riding in a red kayak. It made me smile.

This snow woman is sporting an awesome hairdo of evergreen branches and is dressed for a beach vacation.

And here are the last four pictures of snowmen: one with tomato cages for arms and an elaborate hairdo or crown on his head (not sure what that is), a jolly traditional snowman, a snow woman with a very small head, and a  snowman with a pacifier in his mouth.
