Who can throw a snowball the farthest?!
Difficulty Level: Easy
Time Needed: 7 minutes
Best done: Outdoors or indoors - large space
Main Movement: Throwing
Scrap Paper - crumpled into a ball
Bucket/bin (recyling works great)
Grab scrap paper and have your child(ren) crumble it up into balls.
Set some "challenges" for them such as:
Who can throw the ball the farthest?
Who can get the ball into the bin (we reccommend a recyling bin for easier clean up)
Who can throw the ball the highest
This is sure to be a fun challenge as paper does not throw as easily as actual snowballs!
Have children form their own snowballs as big or small as they want and let them experiment with similar challenges as above.
They will learn in their own way if it is easier or more difficult to throw different sizes of snowballs!
