You might remember those kids a few years ago who made a giant snow sculpture in their yard...I think it was a turtle...anyway they are back at it again this year and the sculpture is already HUGE! The Bartz Brothers of New Brighton are working on a whale in their parents' front yard, and they have started sharing pictures of the creation process.

Yesterday the brothers went live on Facebook to show off their creation in all of its mammoth-sized glory.

This is a serious business for the boys. They 'harvest' snow from an area pond as it has the right consistency in order to shape their masterpieces.

After scrolling through their Facebook page I found out they use plywood to basically frame up their massive pile of snow in order for it to harden enough to mold.

Last year the Bartz brothers, Austin, Trevor & Connor, used their sculpture to help fundraise for clean water in other countries and they raised $30,824.62 that went to Vietnam and Nicaragua.

You can check out the finished sculpture at 2777 16th St NW, New Brighton, MN 55112.
