- On top of the medium circle, draw a smaller circle for the snowman's head.
- Draw a top hat on top of the small circle.
- Add three buttons to the middle circle.

VARIATION: Another variation is to have everyone write their names on the inside of the plate before the game starts. Flip the plate over and follow the directions listed here. At the end, instead of looking at their pictures, have everyone flip it over and pass to the host. The host then shows everyone each picture and lets the game players guess who drew it. You can give prizes for pictures that get the most correct guesses and the person who guesses the most.
