This is such an easy and fun game. My nephew brought over an actual Snow Ball Fight set but you can just as easily do it with newspaper crumpled up. We had fun chasing each other through the house trying to hit each other with the snow balls. In doing so we were getting the following benefits: cardiovascular (there’s lots of running – especially up and down the stairs – when you play with an almost 9 year old), throwing, environmental awareness to avoid obstacle and avoid getting hit, catching (if I was lucky enough), and pretty much any gross motor movement you can think of to hide or get out of the way (jumping, crawling, squatting, etc). My favorite was when I had possession of all the snowballs!
What versions of snow ball fights have you had?
