Setup: 

1. One child is chosen to be the sun.
2. The other kids run around as carefree snowmen.

How to Play: 

1. The sun runs around trying to "melt" (tag) the snowmen.
2. When they are tagged by the sun, they have to melt into a puddle. How the snowmen melt is half the fun of this game! They can be as silly and creative as they like!
3. Play continues for a timed period, or until all the snowmen melt (if it's a small group).
4. Then a new sun is selected and the game repeats.
