Computer is the most basic thing that you need to have in order to play Little Alchemy. As for the game itself, you can either play it online at littlealchemy.com, or download the desktop version.

For the desktop version, however, you will need to download it from the Internet to your computer first.
Once you have loaded or launched the game, you will see the four classical elements in the workspace on the right of the window. In order to combine them, you will have to drag them to the large, purple space and place them atop each other. If a combination is a meaningful one, they will transform into some new classical element and it will get added to the workspace.
Since you are aiming to make a snowman, you will need to combine “human” and “snow.” First, focus on getting human in your workspace.

For swamp, combine mud and plant. Make mud by combining water and earth, while for plant, combine earth and rain. Rain can be made by combining water and air.
Once you have human in your workspace, start working on snow. You will need to combine rain and cold to get what you need. The combination of rain is mentioned in the previous step. As for cold, you will need to combine rain and human to get it.
