A cold and snowy weekend has proven the perfect opportunity for some families to venture outside their warm abode and get creative.
There hasn't been any shortage of the white stuff, especially in the South Island and the central North Island, thanks to a southerly blast.
Ski fields are packed to the brim, roads are closed and snowmen are plentiful.
