“Snow Brick Fort,” Friend, Jan. 1984, 23
You can make a fort out of snow by using a metal bread or meat-loaf pan for a brick mold. Pack snow into mold, turn it upside down, tap bottom of mold lightly, and you have a snow brick! If snow is too dry to pack well, sprinkle water on snow very lightly before packing it into mold.
Build each wall layer by layer, placing bricks side by side with long sides together. Lightly pack snow into any gaps between bricks.
