Mister Christmas :: By Sean O.B.
Jack and Lily were bored. They couldn't go outside to play because it was winter. And when it is winter it is too cold to play. Then mum saw that it was snowing so she said that they could go outside to play in the snow for ten minutes.
Putting their hats and coats on, Jack said, 'what will we do?' 'I know', said Lily. 'Let's make a snowman!' Grabbing Grandad's old hat and scarf, they ran quickly outside.
They rolled up a big ball of snow as fast as they could while singing 'do you want to build a snowman' to each other. It was their favourite song form their favourite movie, 'Frozen'. Very soon they had snowman feet and a big snowman belly built.
Just then they heard mum calling. 'Time is up you two', she said. Jack and Lily walked back into the house sadly.
While they were asleep that night they each had the same dream. They dreamed that a family of snowmen danced into their garden and finished building their snowman. It made them both happy.
Then they woke up and realised it was just a dream. They walked slowly and sadly to the window. To their amazement they saw a fully built snowman in the garden. Their dream had come through!
'What should we call him?', asked Lily. 'I know', said Jack. 'We will call him Mister Christmas.'
They put on the movie 'Frozen' and danced happily. They were so happy that they didn't notice a happy family of snowmen dancing in their garden too.

Ava and Ryan woke up early for school and when they looked out their window they saw a blanket of snow outside. They were happy and excited and the mammy said "no school today because of the snow". They both rushed outside all warm and cosy in their hats, scarves, coats and gloves.
They decided to build a really big and cool snowman, the best one they had ever built. First they gathered piles of snow and carefully they made the head and the body. They went into the house and took their dad's best hat and scarf and the biggest carrot they could find in the kitchen and went back outside.
Together they dressed their snowman up with all the things they got from the house. The hat on his head, the scarf around his neck and the carrot for his nose. They then looked for some stones to add buttons to his body and eyes to his face. They both agreed that this was the coolest snowman ever so they took a selfie with him and put it on Instagram so everyone could see and then Mammy treated them to a hot chocolate with marshmallows and sprinkles.

One snowy day Tadgh and Tara were excitedly looking out the front window at home.
‘Let’s go outside,’ said Tadgh. ‘It would be so much fun to build a snowman in the front garden.’
Tara agreed and her imagination got to work.
‘I’ll go and find an old hat and scarf to put on the snowman,’ she said.
Off she went and quickly found what she was looking for.
Tadgh and Tara then put on their own coats and were ready to go out into the front garden.
They started to roll the snow into big balls and they soon had the snowman’s body built.
Tara picked up three stones and put them in a straight line in the middle to make it look like the snowman was wearing a coat.
Tadgh then picked up another big ball of snow that had a face drawn onto it and a carrot for his nose.
He put this snow on top and Tara put on the scarf and hat to finish off all their busy work.
‘What shall we call him,’ asked Tara?
‘Let’s call him Whitey,’ said Tadgh.
The two children laughed out loud, said goodbye to Whitey and ran back into the house, happy with what they had done.

I woke to see it was very bright outside. I looked out the window and saw the snow. I shouted to my sister "Aoife.. Aoife.. look it's your favourite thing, it snowed last night". We got dressed quickly. Outside Aoife was so excited and so was I. We decided to build the best snow woman ever. Aoife built up the body and I rolled the head around until it got big. I put the head on the body . I found black stones for eyes, Aoife got a carrot for the nose and we used currants to make the mouth. I used my old wooly hat for her head and an old scarf. We got sticks for her hands. Our snow woman was made in our back garden. We were so cold we had to have hot chocolate and cookies. The best day ever, we called the snow woman Miss Whelan. The end.
