The Ultimate Life Teen Snowman Building Contest

The east coast of the United States was getting a healthy dose of fluffy white snow when their latest Life Support shipment arrived with the perfect Life Support toy: A snowman kit. I’m sure many of you (especially parents) had flashbacks of a certain hit song from a certain animated film as soon as you saw that bag of snowman attire, and for that we apologize.

While the snowman kit makes perfect sense for those in colder climates, what about those that are blessed with sunshine in the winter months, or those that never get any snow? We’re glad you asked.

Whether you have two feet of snow outside your youth ministry office, or your landscape is filled with tumbleweed and cacti, we want to challenge you to The Ultimate Life Teen Snowman Building Contest. No snow? Use whatever raw materials personify your region. For those of you on the east coast, that is probably snow (a lot of snow). California? Grab some sand and a surfboard. The possibilities are endless – and we want to see them.

Our staff has already gotten started – check out this creation made by our Western Regional Director, Tricia Tembreull and our friend Jackie Francois Angel

Post your snow (or non-snow) creature to any social media network and tag us in the post (@LifeTeen on Twitter or Instagram) and hashtag it with #LTsnowman. We will share some of our favorites and a couple parishes with the best creations will get signed books from Christina Mead and Mark Hart.

So what are you waiting for? Grab that tumbleweed, cactus, or giant pile of snow and get creating. There is just one question left to ask –

Do you want to build a snow man?

(Sorry, we had to say it).
