Indoor Snowball Toss Game

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 now 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 fun indoor snowball toss game.  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.
 
Check out our WINTER pintrest board for more fun ideas!

Supplies

10 Styrofoam cups
Markers
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.

    We’re kind of stuck in the house with snow today, and my little guy wants to “play a game”. This is perfect!

    I’m right there with you on Winter…and I grew up in Colorado! I’m just not a fan of being cold. :-)

    Such a fun idea! My daughter would absolutely love it. We just did a unit on winter – it’s hard for my almost three year old to grasp the concept when it has been in the 80s here in FL.

    I hope you’ll stop by and link up at Off the Hook!

    I love how easy this is to make with items most people already have at home. We did something similar with ping pong balls and kids just love these types of games.

      Oh I bet ping pong balls would work great with this! I love projects where I have all the stuff already. It makes it easy when I have to come up with stuff on the fly because the girls are board!

    I laughed when I saw this post. What a cute idea and isn’t it difficult to throw those cotton balls. Cute! and a great activity to get through those long winter days.

      Oh I envy you with your warm days. I miss living in Florida when it was warm year round. Please enjoy it for me since I am FREEZING here in the Midwest now!

    What a wonderful idea! We’ve been having constant lake effect snow here in Michigan so this will be nice to do with the girls when taking them outside isn’t an option (they are always sick).

    Thank you for sharing.
