About the Snowman
The snowman has been around for hundreds and hundreds of years — the first documented snowman can be found depicted in the “Book of Hours” from 1380. The world’s largest snowman was actually a snow-woman, standing 122 feet 1 inch tall. She was built in Maine in 2008, and named after Olympia Snowe, Maine’s U.S. Senator.
Popular depictions of snowmen include, of course ‘Frosty,’ and the villain of the horror film ‘Jack Frost.’ A great many snowmen populate Bill Watterson’s ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ universe.
To make the best snowman, wait until the snow is just nearing the melting point, so it’s easy to pack into solid structures. If you don’t have the traditional requisite gear — carrot, hat, scarf, coal, buttons, and sticks for arms — that’s fine! Get creative. It would be a boring world if every snowman looked the same as all the others.

Tips for Printing
Print using a laser printer to prevent smudging when coloring, especially if you’ll be using ink, markers or paint rather than crayons or colored pencils. Consider printing on card stock rather than plain paper to prevent your pigments warping or bleeding through your pages.
