Snow Baseball


Start off by having everyone make a big pile of snowballs. Once that's done, make your baseball diamond by making four snow mounds for home plate, first, second, and third base, with a mound in the middle for the "pitcher" to stand on.

Place a bottle or can on top of the four mounds in the diamond.

Taking turns, have each player stand on the pitcher's mound and try to knock the bottle off each mound by throwing snowballs at each one.

The player who uses the fewest snowballs to knock each bottle over wins.
