A couple years ago, I was spending the holidays with my daughter and her family in Southern California and I made several pom poms for my granddaughter. She had a blast running through the house having a “snowball fight” with anyone and everyone. As you probably already guessed, there is never any snow in her yard but she had the next best thing! (maybe the best thing because, no frozen hands and the snow never melts).
The “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 great snowball fight!
(yeah its great to torment your children by giving their children awesome fun toys, HA!)
Oh not to worry, I am not leaving the other daughter out, each of her children are also getting a box full of “Snowballs”!!
Ok, here’s what I did for these fun packages. I brought a large skein of white yarn and used my Clover pom pom maker to make 10 snowballs for each child.

I made the snowballs a little thinner than a normal pom pom so they would look fluffier!
Wrap the yarn 100 wraps around each side of the Clover pom pom maker but if you wish them fuller just add more wraps. One large (7oz) skein of white yarn makes about 17 snowballs.
I found these sweet little boxes at Walmart for less than $2 apiece. I loved the clear tummy of the snowman that show my snowballs.
