- : Snowballs can be hard or full of ice and in many cases very damaging upon impact. Avoid getting hit in the face.
- Step 1: Find good snow Find some snow that can be made into good, sturdy snowballs. Wet snow is best.
- Step 2: Form a snowball Form a snowball by grabbing a bunch of snow in your two hands and squeezing it together to form a ball. Round the edges off to form a good 3-inch diameter sphere.
- TIP: A little heat will help melt the snow into a firm ball, so breathe into your hands as you form them.
- Step 3: Make several snowballs Make a bunch of snowballs. Stockpile them near you or in a fort.
- TIP: Snowballs made with ice, rocks, and other hard objects are considered very unsportsmanlike and can be incredibly dangerous.
- Step 4: Find your target Find your target. Throw a snowball at them when they least expect it. The element of surprise is crucial, especially if they’re bigger or can throw harder.
- Step 5: Continue attacking Keep throwing to disorient your opponent and to make a counter-strike difficult to execute.
- TIP: Don’t completely deplete your arsenal before making new snowballs, or else you will be vulnerable to attack.
- Step 6: Don’t stop until they give up Continue until your opponent lies broken before you, or at least mildly irritated.
- FACT: 3,745 students of Michigan Technological University set the world record for the largest snowball fight on February 10, 2006.
