Here is a fun Winter themed activity kids of all ages will enjoy: the snowball transfer game or challenge!
Snowball Kindergarten Games - this is a fun winter game and to help kids practice oral motor exercises (toddler, preschool too)


This snowball game is not only fun but it also develops oral motor skills, skills needed for speech and eating too!

For this game you will need:
  • straws
  • cotton wool balls or white pompoms
  • containers
Christmas games


You can play the game two ways:

  1. Timed challenge with as many friends or siblings as you'd like: see who can fill a bucket in 30 seconds
  2. Timed individual challenge: beat your previous time. The aim of the game is to fill the bucket in a certain time by sucking the straw and lifting the "snowball" to transfer it into a bucket. The trick is to suck and keep on sucking until the ball drops into the bucket. Transfer the balls as quick as you can!

This snowball transfer game can go along with the rhyme: 'The Perfect Snowball'. I made myself a snowball, as perfect as could be. I thought I'd keep it as a pet, and let it sleep with me. I made it some pajamas, and a pillow for its head. Then last night, it ran away. But first, it wet my bed!
