Winter will be here shortly. Being from Minnesota, I always find it hard to believe winter starts in late December as the winter weather has already been here for a while! I’m excited to share a fun winter themed game that is perfect for the entire winter season and a fun winter movement game that anyone can play.
Snowball Relay – Winter Movement Game
The snowball relay can be played with one person all the way up to an entire classroom.
How To Play
Get your kids into teams of 1 to 8 kids. This game is also fine to be played with one person racing against their own time.
Kids should line up in their teams.
Start with the first person in line and have students race rolling their snowballs from the front to the back of the classroom (gym, yard, sidewalk etc.) and picks up their snowball card.Carry snowballs, roll snowballs, walk backward with snowballs etc.
The first kids gives the next child in line a high five when they return and that student goes. If only one child is playing they just keep going.
Once the student has completed the race they sit down.
The first team to have all their snowball cards collected and the word snowball spelled out (optional) wins. Some kids may have to go more than once.
The relay is done again but with variations.
Variations can include but are not limited to – moving snowballs with their feet, carrying snowballs on a spoon, rolling snowballs with a pool noodle, passing snowballs back and forth with a team member rolling snowballs while moving backward or sideways!
Snowball Roll With A Stability Ball
I mentioned above, I like to play this game with a stability ball. The space needs to be a bit larger like or outdoors if you are lucky enough to have nice weather. Check out the video below to see how the stability ball is moved across the gym or outdoors.
