Here's When You Know Your Fever Is Too High

You Provide the Snow

If you've ever played, I mean really played in the snow, you know you work up a sweat. It's tough work tromping around in the deep snow - you're like the Michelin Man in all those extra layers. Just walking around in snow is considered low-impact aerobics.

Plus, you burn more calories in the cold, because your body uses up more fuel to keep itself warm. And snow's heavy - picking it up and moving it around is basically like lifting weights.

There are tons of well-known sports that are winter-driven, such as skiing and snowboarding, but what about Snowman Making? It's a fun total body workout, and at the end, you've got something beautiful to show for it.

Make it even more of an event by getting this Snowman Kit. It's only $10.99 and includes everything you could possibly need to make your snowman the best dressed in the neighborhood.

It's complete with a flowing scarf, a classic top hat, a carrot nose (made out of plastic), and a genuine corn cob pipe. What's cool is that all the stuff is re-usable, so you're really getting your money's worth.

I have such great memories of laughing with my family while playing in the snow. It's a great way to continue the tradition, and to instill a love of the outdoors in your family's hearts.

i've never made a snowman. :( but, the trade off is amazing weather and disneyland, so i'm cool with it! i don't know about these kits, though. being prepared and organized for something that should be spontaneous and erratically fun seems to, well, take the fun out of it. of course, i've never done it, so what would i know?

We went to Tahoe for New Years and built a snowman. It is hard work!!! A total body workout for sure.
