Homemade Snowballs…2 ingredients for a backyard snowball fight!

Homemade Snowballs

This is a super fun recipe you can whip up in no time for the kiddies. It makes for a great sensory activity and you can mould it into snow balls…you can make a snowman (even Olaf from Frozen) or have an awesome backyard snowball fight. All with just two ingredients! Living on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, we never have an opportunity for an ‘actual’ snowball fight, so this is the perfect activity for us when we want to get our ‘snow’ on!

To make your own you will need:

Olaf Ingredients

Cornflour (we used 2 x 500g pkts)

Shave Foam (we used 2 x 250g cans)

Step 1

Pour your Cornflour packets into a large ‘sensory bin’ – we use the clear storage bins from the $2 shop

Step 2

Add the shaving foam

Step 3

Give it a really good mix – super fun for the kids to do!

Step 4

Shape your new DIY snow into snowballs and get ready for a SNOWBALL FIGHT!

I can’t tell you the amount of fun my kids had with this (as you can see on their faces above). The ‘snowballs’ easily mould into shape, but they don’t hurt when they are fired at you!

  1. Love all the things you have to do for kids!! Thank you for your site/blog us moms with busy kids appreciate you taking time out to show us these things! Have a blessed new year!

    1. Hi Amber, Thank you for your lovely comment! We just love that there are so many Fun Mums or Moms out there like you! Louise x

  2. How long does this last? I’d like to make it for a station at my daughter’s frozen birthday party, but want to make it in advance. Will it keep?

  3. Corn flour in Australia = corn starch in the US and Canada.

    I am going to organize a snowball fight at a family gathering this summer!

    Thanks for the great ideas.
