Snowball Soccer - If you have paper and tape you have enough for snowball soccer. If you have 1 child have them set up a goal and see how many they can shoot in out of 20, 30, or 100 tries. If you have more than one child then you can play the game. Here are the instructions for Indoor Snowball Soccer.
