“How boring to be in the house all the time!“ he says. “Go out for a walk!“ Sparky answers. “But I want to do something. Not only walking!“ Spacy grumbles. “Build a snowman!“ Sparky proposes. “That‘s not a bad idea! I will produce snow sculptures!“ Spacy says with a big smile.

For the next few hours Spacy is very busy outside. “Please, come out and have a look!“ he invites Sparky. “Wow! You are really an artist!“ Sparky says astonishedly. Spacy has built some nice snow sculptures. Also the neighbours are coming to see the amazing sculptures. Spacy is very proud.
