Yet another snowstorm is set to hit Colorado tomorrow (Feb 22) so here’s a cool way to take advantage of whatever accumulates in your yard!

A unique project that brings joy to a Colorado children’s hospital is back this winter. For the third year in a row, kids who are stuck in Children’s Hospital Colorado can draw their version of ‘a perfect snowman’ and their artwork is matched with volunteers who bring the snowmen drawings to life.

The 2023 campaign opened last week for families who want to participate and runs to the end of March, traditionally Colorado’s snowiest month.

Families interested in building snowmen can sign up online. They will be paired with a patient and—after bringing the frosty design to life—they’ll submit photos or video for the Children’s Colorado team to share with the artists.
