When making a snow fort you do not want the snow to be to wet or to dry it has to be just right in order to work out right.
Pack snow into rectangular containers.
To place the snow brick on the ground you have to just flip the container over close to the ground and you have a brick.
Lay the brick on top of one another until it is high enough for you to get behind and hide.
Fill the cracks in between the bricks with some extra snow.
Now pack it in more using some shovels.
You can use long sticks to make the snow walls more stable.
If you pour water over it and leave it overnight it will become a lot more stable and more fun.
You can make windows in the walls by punching holes through them. Do this carefully, or else the walls may collapse.
Tunnels or Rooms
To make tunnels or rooms for your snow fort, you have to have deep snow first: The waist-high kind.
Dig through the snow using a shovel or your hands. Do this carefully, as you want to have a remaining ceiling that wonâ€™t topple down on you. Make a space big enough to pass comfortably in, preferably a circle-shaped tunnel.
You can make rooms the same way as you make tunnels. Instead of digging a long passage under the snow, make a rounder space using the same method, with your hands or a shovel. Make sure that you leave walls thick enough to prevent collapsing. Punch out holes in the walls to make windows.
Unlike the other methods of making different parts of a snow fort, donâ€™t use ice on snow tunnels and snow rooms. You might need to break out of the rooms and tunnels quickly, and using ice may make this more difficult.
