Indoor Snowball Fight Kit

Little Ava Campbell got to play with their snowball kit on her first winter!

I saw this on Pinterest and have seen them in a store or 2.  For about $10-$20 per kit.  I decided it'd be easy enough to make. For about $3 per kit.

1) $3 skein of white yarn -- cheaper if you can find it at a resale shop.  To make the pom-poms, wrap it around fingers or piece of cardboard about 80-100 times. 

2)  slip off cardboard carefully and tie a double knot in the middle.  Then clip the loops all the way around.

3) hot glue thrift store (99 cents) ribbon around the brim of a plastic snowman hat (25 cents at thrift store).
Write what it is with a paint pen.  It'd be cute to make up a little poem for instructions. (paint pen $2 on sale)

4) there ya go. I'll wrap them up basket wrap from Dollar Tree and a bow.  Maybe a pom-pom bow.

I told David the "snowballs" prob won't last 30 seconds.  He said, let me look at them.  Before I knew it he was pounding me with snowballs and we had quite the snowball fight for a couple of minutes. Rocky wasn't sure what to think.  :)  They do last longer than 30 seconds.
