Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Still no snow?


We can still built a snowman!

When I visited one of my favourite gift shops for Christmas stuffers, Labour of Love in Toronto, I noticed a white puddle on a shelf that looked like some sort of coaster.

Miracle_Melting_SnowmanRegina the owner noticed that I did not react to the thing so she pointed out that the flattened snowman was actually a work in progress! It's the Miracle Melting Snowman. (Very good $10 addition to a Christmas stocking!)

She then proceeded to roll the white stuff into two balls, rebuilding a full snowman with the little props supplied in the kit.

In the next half hour that it took me to tour the shop, the little guy had already started to melt. He would eventually go back to looking like Dali's "montres molles".

For a different kind of melting snowman, check the last photo on this post!
