If it is too cold outside for your little ones to go and play. Being them inside for a snowball toss indoors! Toddlers, preschoolers and even school age kids can all play this game together. My four kids played it one afternoon and had a ball…no pun intended! A snowball toss indoors is easy to set up. You only need two supplies.
Really little ones can not spend as much time outside during the winter months. Their little bodies do not move enough to stay warm. A little bit of time exploring the snow is a great activity for winter days, but you can also do a lot indoors to have fun. When the weather is too cold for outdoor play, bring the snowball toss indoors.
Indoor Snowball Toss
tissue paper (about 10 sheets or 2-3 per child)
How to prep and play:
I had the kids prep this one. It is nice and easy.
The kids scrunch the tissue paper into balls.
They can place the “snowballs” back into the basket.
My preschooler wanted to count the snowballs. She lined them up one-by-one and little sister helped.
Then we set up the basket at the end of a long rug. You can use a hallway or any open space in your home.
This activity can be adapted for any skill level and age. Even babies can pick up the balls and place them in the basket as a fun “clean up style” activity. Many ball games for kids can be modified to work indoors or outdoors. They get kids moving.
After playing the indoor snowball toss game, try this winter in a bag sensory play activity. The cold weather may keep us indoors, but we can have fun anyway.
We had a snowball toss indoors since we lived in Southern California and no snow was in sight even though winter was in full swing.
This activity can be stored nearby for a snowball toss indoors any time.
Do your kids get out to play in the snow or does a snowball toss indoors work better?
