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.

I, personally, think that the LGBTQ+ community is appropriate to talk about at school. I agree with you. We have the freedom to talk about whatever we want and I think at this age we are mature enough to understand this concept. While it is a unusual thing to talk about in school, I think it's perfectly fine to talk about. Me and my friends talk about this all the time and no one has ever stopped us and told us it was wrong. I was surprised when this happened because we go to a catholic school and catholic schools don't normally support talking about these things. Some teachers just don't understand at this age we are getting more mature and probably can understand more personal subjects better than adults can. I am honestly angry that your teachers said it wasn't appropriate for school. It's just a topic to talk about! At least you guys weren't talking about something even more sensitive than this like ISIS or the Holocaust.

Just because I'm a kid doesn't mean they should be able to stop me from trying to install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons, and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. They act like my opinions don't matter just because I'm young. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to attack people needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding. Can't tell if you're just making a joke or if you're making fun of the spectrum.. I'm making fun of this entire "issue". And yes, the LGBTQRSTUVWYXZ community is innapropriate for school. No one needs to know who you're ######## attracted to, as after all, at such a young age, you shouldn't be worried about that.
