Game description

With the winter usually comes snow. And with this, you can do a lot. Besides snow angels, you can also make igloos or snow formations. Even a snowball fight is fun and provides plenty of variety. Especially, if the group comes together new, snowball throwing can take away quite a bit of the initial awkwardness. Kids get to know each other playfully and learn which name belongs to who. To begin, all are standing in a circle. Everybody makes a snowball, and one starts to throw the snowball to somebody else. If this person got hit, he has to say his name. After an initial warm-up phase and when each player has said his name, you can play this game the other way around. Again you are throwing the snowball at somebody, but this time, the guy with snowball has to call out the person’s name. This is just another way to promote thinking and concentration while at it is very entertaining the same time. In summer, you can play this game with a softball.
