You're never too old to join in the fun. A 99-year-old woman helped Bismarck, North Dakota, recapture a snow-angel-making world record. Learn how to make snow angels.

* Snow
* Waterproof clothes
* A hat
* And gloves or mittens

Carefully fall backward onto the snow with your arms outstretched.

Step 3: Move your arms and legs
Move your arms and legs back and forth, like you're doing jumping jacks.

Step 4: Press your head
Press your head back enough to make a clear indentation.

Get up carefully so you don't wreck your masterpiece. For best results, have a friend help you up.

In 2002, 1,791 people in Bismarck, North Dakota, made snow angels on the state capitol grounds.
