Ninja snowman entered in the fatherhood contest

Dads and their children recently had the chance to show off their snowman-building skills and enter the Coshocton Fatherhood Initiative snowman-building contest. The contest runs through Feb. 28, and one of the many entries they have already received was from Jon McFarland.

The recent snow was perfect for building snowmen. McFarland and his 6-year-old foster son spent three hours creating a Ninja Turtle masterpiece in Warsaw.

“I saw in The Beacon about the Fatherhood Initiative snowman contest,” McFarland said. “This is the first time he got to experience building a snowman. He said it was the coolest snowman he has ever seen.”

Pictures of dads and their kids building snowmen can be submitted to the Coshocton Fatherhood Facebook page for a chance to win valuable prizes. You will find the group under William Johnson “Coshocton Fathers.”

Provide contact information to be notified if you win or call Johnson at 740-610-6412 and report your information. A family may have more than one child participating, and they also can build a snowman for prizes (family with two, three, four or more children can build and be entered into the contest).

Dad must be present to help children both build for and redeem prizes. Prizes include five Kindle Fires, 10 Papa John’s pizzas, five Walmart gift cards, and one overnight stay for Dad and his kids at the Coshocton Inn and Suites with all the amenities and a Papa John’s dinner meal.
