Snowball Relay


This game is a great way to burn off some extra energy. You'll need two or more teams of equal numbers to play.

Start off by making a "track" in your yard by tamping snow down in a large oval shape. Have each team make a snowball to use as their relay stick.

To play, each player runs around the track, and passes their snowball onto the next player. Continue this until each team member has run around the track. The first team to finish wins.

To make this a little more challenging, try making hurdles along your track by packing mounds of snow for the players to jump over.
