Snowball Fight


Have a ball battling with your kids in a snowball fight. By joining in the fun, you can help your younger child or underdog while also supervising to make sure it doesn't turn into bullying. Avoid injuries by making sure the snow isn't too icy. Snow on super-cold days will be too light and airy to form a ball. Here's a tip: Lie down on the snow for a few minutes to heat some up and then try to pack that warmer snow into a ball.
