How to have a Snowball Fight

Having a snowball fight is fun, but if you set it up properly, it’s epic. Snowball fights are just like war and with the proper rules, you can make a snowball fight full of strategy. Here is Kidzworld’s guide on how to have a snowball fight.

Snow Safety

First let’s make sure that we have a safe snowball fight. The last thing you want in a good snowball fight is hard feelings between friends. Here are a few rules that will keep your snowball fight in check:

  • Have a “safety word” that anyone can call to stop the game in case someone is in trouble
  • Snowballs must be made only with snow. Adding things to a snowball is dangerous
  • Set boundaries
  • Set a time limit
  • Make sure the teams are fair

A fort built out of snow is the most fun way to set up a snowball fight. But it takes time to build a useful fort, so take about one hour before the fight begins to build your fort. The best way to build forts quickly is the same way you would build a snowman. Roll the snow and combine all your large balls of snow. Once you have a sturdy wall of shelter, attach a flag to a stick and stand proud of your territory.

Stocking Up

While you’re building your fort, make sure to load up with ammunition. Make a huge pile of snowballs so that when the fight begins, you’re ready to attack and defend. A sneaky tactic is to hide some snowballs in a spot where you can surprise attack.

If you have teams of two or more people, organization is key. Assignments and job titles are a lot of fun and really good strategies:

  • Snipers
  • Mechanic (someone who makes snowballs and fixes the fort)
  • Captain
  • Snowtroopers (runners sent out to attack)

Waging War

War has been declared to begin when the town clock strikes noon. Wait for the church bells to start ringing. Raise your flag and launch the first snowball high in the air to begin. However you attack and defend your fort is up to you, but the first team to capture the other team’s flag wins the game.

How do riots justify Freddie Gray's death? Why wait for someone to speak out "from within the storm" and stop the violence: simply don't start the mob to begin with. You say you're for equality and justice and I don't doubt that, but is it just for business owners completely removed from the situation to see their stores looted or property burned? Doesn't sound like equality to me.  What I mean by equality is that everyone lives in a place that if someone hated another for their race or religion they would just leave it alone and keep tht to themselves.  Same with other people.  The looting and burnings of business owner's store or property are juss ways of making a statement tht says juss bc were a different race doesnt give u the right to harm one of us.  wit all of the things goin on do u rly think tht the rioters will b heard enough if they juss give a few speeches? they need to b heard in a bigger way for ppl to understand how upset they r and wht theyre trying to prove.
