Do you like building snowmen? I know that usually children are the ones that build them, but how about adults? In Seattle, it hardly ever snows. So, if it does, then everyone plays outside! I think you’re never too old to have fun in the snow.
In America – and maybe other English speaking countries? – we build snowmen with three balls. If we make snowmen with two balls, then maybe they are snowchildren! I was surprised to learn that in Japan, everyone only uses two balls. In the same way, many of my students were surprised to hear that we use three snowballs in the U.S.! Some of them said, “What’s the third ball for?” But my answer is: Who cares?
How do you make the snowman’s face in Japan? In the U.S., we use rocks for the eyes and mouth, and a sometimes a carrot for the nose.
Here are a couple of snowmen – maybe they can be friends.
