Snowball Drop


Teams of two use hip-power and agility to empty their fort of snowballs before reaching the finish line.


Gather:
  • 2 empty rectangular pop-up style tissue boxes
  • 2 belts (long enough to fit each contestant’s waist)
  • 8 ping pong balls
  • Scissors or box cutter

Prepare:
  • Cut a slit at each end of the tissue box and thread the belt through. This forms the “snowball fort” which will be worn around the contestants’ waists. Repeat with second box.
  • Fill each snowball fort with 4 ping pong balls.

Play:
  • Form teams of two.
  • Person A buckles the belt around their waist with the full snowball fort placed at the small of their back.
  • On “Go,” Person A begins to wiggle their hips and walk/run so that the snowballs drop out of the fort as they make their way to the finish line; they may only cross the finish line when all 4 snowballs have dropped.
  • Meanwhile, Person B walks/runs behind their teammate, encouraging, catching and counting the falling snowballs.  
  • When all snowballs have dropped and Person A has crossed the line, the teammates change roles, refilling the fort with the 4 snowballs before heading back to the other side of the field.


The first pair to complete the circuit wins the snowball fight!
