Indoor snowball fight!
Last weekend I got a night to myself. Kiddos were at grandpa and grandma's house and hubby was on a fishing weekend.
Aaaaahhhhh... I can do anything I would like... SO I SPENT THE ENTIRE NIGHT SEWING SNOWBALLS. This was a project that was on my list last year after I pinned "Snowball Fight in a Bucket" from personalcreations. The fabric was purchased then, but Spring came before the project got started.
I got a rough idea on how to make a "ball" form by googling patterns. Although I did not find a pattern, the consensus was to imitate the sections of a beach ball. Six petal shapes would form a ball. The nice thing about this fabric was it was "chunky" and did not need to be perfect.
I was worn out at ball number 18, and decided that I had plenty.
Later, when the family was together playing, I snuck away to get set-up. I threw 3 balls and a paper airplane with a message down to the family. It read..'SNOWBALL FIGHT! You are armed, Come find me.' When they went looking I ambushed them with my pile of snowballs.
I was ganged-up on. Snowballs were everywhere. We couldn't find all of them right away, and still misplaced one.
The kiddos have had several more Snowball fights this week, and I am sure these will be used many more times in years to come.
