A DIY Indoor Snowball Game that uses a pom pom maker that makes yarn pom pom snowballs. This is an easy to make Snowball Fight game with pom pom string snowballs.
A few years ago, I was spending the holidays with my daughter and her family in Southern California and I made several yarn pom pom snowballs for my granddaughter. She had a blast running through the house having a snowball fight game with anyone and everyone.
As you probably already guessed, there is never any snow in her yard but she had the next best thing an indoor snowball fight game. Maybe the best thing because no frozen hands and the snow never melts.
The yarn pom pom snowballs eventually were damaged beyond repair (I do believe their puppy did get involved).
Now she has a 2-year-old little sister and I decided they both needed a pile of snowballs for a new indoor snowball fight game.
