Christmas is fun, but you can make it even more entertaining for children by organizing a Snowmen Slam, that can be played both indoors or outdoors. What’s even more interesting, is that you can recycle items around the house to prepare for this game, making a great Winter gift to our beloved Earth.
- 10 plastic bottles – 500 ml
- foam (from an old cushion)
- washi tape
- felt pom poms
- permanent marker pen
- double sided tape or hot glue gun
Empty the plastic bottles and dry them well. Remove the label and clean the residue of glue.
Put rice into bottles to fill about a quarter of the volume in each one of them. I chose to do like that, as when you hit them, sometimes they come back as they are heavier only on the bottom. For this game, that is great!
Seal the bottles with a bit of hot glue on cap when closing them. This will prevent for children to empty them and create a chocking hazard.
Draw on the faces and buttons of the snowmen with the permanent marker. You can glue cartoon faces or buttons made of pom poms but during the slam these may fall off.
You need to arrange the snowmen in a pyramid, like when playing bowling: One in the first row, two on the second row, three on third row and 4 on fourth row.
The person playing must be at a distance based on their age and they need to throw the ball hitting the snowmen. They are allowed three strikes at a time and the number of snowmen down are equal with a point.
You can decide if to use a score on a table or a paper and if to give rewards for the winner, or if you play for fun only.
The heavier the ball, the easier will be to knock down the snowmen.
