If you want to build a sturdy snow fort, all you have to do is follow this recipe for snow bricks.


  • Loaf pan


  1. Pack snow into a loaf pan. (If the snow is powdery, sprinkle a little water on it before packing it into the pan.)
  2. Turn the pan upside down and tap the bottom lightly to release the brick. Use snow bricks to build a fort.
  3. Bricks laid with their long sides together will make a sturdy structure.
  4. Pack snow in the gaps between the bricks as you lay them.
