Inspired Snow Art: Alternatives To Snowmen

Did your town get walloped with snow this week? Perhaps it's still coming down. Sure you and your kids could get out there with your carrot and scarf for a traditional snowman - or - you could try something really rad like these inspired pieces of snow art.Apartment Therapy's CTO, Scott Trudeau, tipped us off to this excellent dinosaur (top photo) which his friend created to delight his kids. Consider us delighted, too! It was likely a nod to Draw A Dinosaur Day which is definitely going on our calendar for next year.

A stoop snow dog on my Brooklyn block (photo 2) has been a sensation with my son and we visit it every day. The rest we found on Flickr to get even more of your creative juices flowing.

Enjoy!
