Snowman melts hearts

Children have a grip on reality that we as adults don't always get.

The children have all been merrily making snow men  here there and everywhere.

But today I realised how important it is for children to name things even snowmen, as it gives them a sense of reality . For them you see the snow man comes alive.

"My snowman died today" said the child quite sadly.

"I am sorry " I said.


"We didn't even get to name him, he just melted"

So make sure you name your snowman..... and remember him fondly.

  1. We try to name all the animals here on the farm too, the children take great delight in doing so.

  2. We didn't build one this time because the children didn't want it to melt. I did suggest making a tiny freezer one but they weren't keen.

  3. We were just discussing today how we are not really a family for naming things. Our car for example.
    After reading your article I'll ask the boys if they want to name our snow babies.

  5. Our snowman that we made at the weekend (the fruit and veg one in my Silent Sunday pic) was named 'Emma' by MC!

    p.s. Keith is THE best snowman name ever.
