Forever-lasting Snowman

Derek and Clint have been very unsatisfied with the snow that we have received so far this year. It has been okay for snowballs, and sledding, but has been the worst snow for building snow people, and forts.

So we had to take matters into our own hands, and make some indoor snowmen. Derek and his best friend Kooy got right to work making the best snow men in the world...the kind that will not melt in the sun...the kind that last forever...and they are not even cold!
I found another use for my Borax!

The compound can only be made with Ivory Soap...I tried it with Dove...it doesn't work.

And dont use a real carrot for the nose...it shriveled up and fell off...I recommend an orange pipe cleaner instead.
The compound is a little hard on your hands...especially when mixing it up...but it dries really nicely, and really looks just like snow!
