Classroom Snowball Fight!!

Hi Friends... it's that time of the year... snowflakes, snowmen and snowball fights!!
Have you read Jimmy Fallon's Snowball Fight?
It's as adorable as he is!!
Read it to your students and then....

...have your own classroom snowball fight!

Grab a bag of mini marshmallows and bag of balloons ... 
invite your students to bring in an empty toilet paper roll and you are set!

First, cut the top inch of the balloon off.
Second, stretch the balloon over one end of the toilet paper roll.
Third, (optional... but so darn cute ;) 
 secure the balloon with a bit of decorative duck tape.
Last, drop a mini marshmallow into your shooter, pull the balloon back and 
launch your snowball.

Check out my daughter here...

I guarantee hours of fun for the kiddos at recess and home.
For a bit of academic support... set up a few targets for the kids to aim at.
Kids can add up their totals for a math activity and competition.

Looking for some yummy Holiday Recipes?

Great idea! Thank you for the preview of Jimmy Fallon's book! I didn't know that had written a children's book. Sounds like I need to get that book!
