Use Some Ice at the Party
The big advantage of ice work is that it lasts longer than snow sculptures, and the ice can be transported. So the next time someone asks you to bring some ice to the party, exceed their expectations!
With no right or wrong way to make an abstract sculpture, these are great projects for the whole family, even those who might be too self-conscious to get involved with a more traditional design. After you create a few of these sculptures, you'll find sometimes their real beauty emerges or changes as the original design melts, revealing more intricate shapes and shadows in the sunlight.

Let Nature do the Sculpting
In this photo, even the texture of the snow looks like fur, and the end result is a polar bear that looks like it would be at home in most toy rooms, as well as out on the polar ice flows.
