Who doesn't love a snowball fight? Being outside in the freezing cold, getting pummeled with icy cold "rock" like objects that always seem to hit you in the face? Well, I love a good snowball fight; when I am the one that stays warm and out of target range, but I especially love the idea of having one indoors. So, since my kids and I love to have these snowball fights, but aren't too fond of the icy cold either, we decided to bring the snow indoors.
I found these little metal buckets at the dollar store
and with a paint pen, added some embellishments to the front.
I then went over to JoAnn's and found me some fluffy white fabric....on the clearance rack of course. When I got home, I cut the fabric into various sized circles, and with right sides together, sewed them up leaving small hole so I could turn them right side out and add stuffing. When they were stuffed to my liking, I simply hand stitched the small hole together. And that's it, a homemade, fluffy warm snowball.
I decided to take it one step further and add faces to these snowballs. Perhaps it would make getting hit with them a little more fun. So, I embroidered little black eyes, an orange carrot nose, and a mouth with cold rosy cheeks to make them look fun.
Put a bunch (my buckets held 6) together in a bucket and then, you are super well equipped for the best snowball fight ever.
Now isn't that crafty?
