3 Copies of the 30th Anniversary Edition of The Snowman DVD to be Won



Christmas is getting closer which means one thing Christmas movies! I love a good Christmas movie to get me in a festive mood and you can’t get more Christmassy than The Snowman.

I can’t believe it is 30 years old, makes me feel very old indeed!

There is something magical about a Snowman, BG adores making them. Here is ours from last year.


Duncan Hamilton from Hamilton ice sculptures has some great tips on our to create the prefect snowman:

Duncan says:

The traditional way to build a snowman is to pack snow together by hand, roll it to form balls and pat snow on to the surface to make the shape.

This is quite limiting in terms of design and is not how the pros do it! To make a really strong snowman with lots of extra detail, why not try the following tips. But make sure you get a grown up to help you!

  • Get four equal sized sheets of wood. Arrange them to make a box with an open top and run a strong rope around them to keep them steady.
  • Now shovel fresh snow into the box.
  • Stamp or push it down carefully to compact it and carry on until you have filled the whole box.
  • Leave it to stand for at least a couple of hours.
  • Now remove the rope and the sheets of wood to reveal a perfectly compacted block of snow.
  • You are now ready to carve your snow. Use any tools you have to hand – knives, saws, even spoons. You should find the snow quite easy to sculpt.
  • Think carefully about your design and make sure that it is heavy at the base to prevent it collapsing or falling over.
  • Be ambitious and have a good time!

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of The Snowman I have 3 Copies of the DVD to giveaway.
Just follow the instructions below and good luck.
