Indoor Snowball Toss Game
So it is Winter and that means it is cold. And I'll be honest here, I hate the cold and could really do without Winter (I grew up in the south where there was no Winter). However I now live in the Midwest and during these long cold winter months we are stuck indoors to entertain ourselves so we don't freeze outside.
And well the kids have been getting even more restless than I have. So I have been trying to think of fun ways to keep us entertained and having fun. That is when I thought we could do a snowball toss. Both girls love our Pyramid Bowling game (yes I saved the cans and we still pay with them!). So I thought they would really like this fun game.
And to make it even more fun, we got a little crafty and made our cups into snowmen. Which, both my girls loved to do because coloring is just so awesome.
This was also a fun game that both girls were able to play. However my little one is sneaky and cheats, but we are pretty laid back around here so allowed it.
Which season is your least favorite?
10 Styrofoam cups
6 Big Pom Poms
Directions for Snowman Cups
Color a cute snowman face on all 10 of your cups. (Note: younger children may just scribble, and that is fine)
Directions for Snowball Toss Game
Line your cups up in a pyramid format
Stand a couple feet back (younger children may stand closer) and toss your snowballs (the pom poms) into the cups.
Be aware of sneaky kids that walk up to cups and place snowballs in without tossing.
Each player gets one point for making a snowball into the cup. Play as many rounds as the kids want.
