Wanna have some serious fun this winter?
Stay warm and dry with the perfect entertainment for cooped up kids (and adults!) … have an indoor snowball fight!
With this super fun crochet pattern, Christmas doesn’t need to be about ‘bored’ games and eating naughty food when you can take this set with you where ever you go. Get the party started and get some great exercise too!
The pattern includes how to make the snowballs AND the perfect sized bag to keep them! It is written in both US and UK terminology, and both versions are provided on purchase, just choose to download which one is best for you.
The snowballs are lovely and soft so even the little family members can play without getting hurt. You might want to move any breakables first though!
The bag also makes an ideal reusable eco-friendly gift bag.
You can substitute any aran weight yarn for the bag, however your measurements may vary slightly from those stated in the pattern. Your tension may also affect this. It shouldn’t matter though.
For best results for the snowballs use the suggested yarn.
