Sure, it’s September so there shouldn’t be any snow, right? Why not make some – or at least some snowballs? Here’s a game where kids can make snowballs and have a late summer snowball fight!


Snowball

Materials:

  • Lots of scrap paper
  • Tape

Directions:

  1. Make snowballs by wadding up paper and taping where necessary.
  2. There should be at least one snowball per child.
  3. Determine boundaries.
  4. Pick a designated area as a “snow fort”.
  5. When play begins, children try to get each out by hitting them with snowballs.
  6. If a child is hit with a snowball, (s)he must drop and snowballs and run to the snow fort.
  7. Child may rest at the fort or immediately come right back into the game.
