1 Hour : Play It : Snow Sports

Beyond angels and snowmen...I want to try some unusual "snow sports" with my kids.

--Play snow "basket"-ball. Scoop out a large bowl-shaped area in the snow and make a ton of snowballs, then see who can land the most into the basket.
--Try snowball catch for variation.

--Team up for snow hockey or golf. Use a broom for hockey, or bring along a toy club for golf.

--Have fun with outdoor tic-tac-toe. Use a long stick to draw the grid and the Xs and Os. Or color snowballs (use a spray bottle filled with watered-down food coloring) and throw them into the grid to play - red against blue, for example, instead of X vs. O.

--Go snow bowling. Line up inverted pails of snow, then try to knock them down with snowballs.
