Maybe that's a little ambitious for a spur of the moment idea. As they say, start small.
I've got three mounds of snow in my yard and in the street in front of my house that will be growing this weekend. I think I'll try turning at least one of them into a snow sculpture. The only downside is that they get full sun all day, so they'll melt fast. Very temporary art.

If you're interested in making your own snow sculpture, here are some samples to inspire you.
You can also use food coloring and spray paint for colorful sculptures.
