Snowball Game

For this simple winter game for kids you will need a few basic supplies you probably already have at your house:

Materials:

  • straws
  • cotton wool balls or white pompoms
  • containers
Christmas games

Family party games

You can play the cotton ball 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!

Snowball game

This snowballs 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!
