Build a snow fort

Snow is nature’s Lego.

Just because we’re adults, it doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! Get all geared up, head outdoor and build yourself a snow fort – or an igloo! All you need is some snow and some imaginations, let’s get started.

Here are some tips to build a great snow fort:

  1. Trace out the size of the fort – not too big and not too small
  2. Start building up the fort walls – can be by hands freestyling it or you can also use some Tupperware container to make snow bricks.
  3. If using snow bricks, think like a bricklayer. Leave a few inches between each brick and fill with packed snow.
  4. Sculpt the walls with more snow and smooth out with a shovel
  5. Turn it into ice! Poor some cold water from the bottom up on the outside of the walls to create an icy finish.
