Snowman Toss Game: A game for the whole family

As a nice break from the Christmas crafts, it’s time to do a fun family Christmas activity. If your household is anything like mine, it is currently stacked with boxes. Well, the other day at work we literally got the biggest box I have ever seen delivered! The first thing I did when it was emptied was climb into it. Well, crawl into it. I’m only 5ft and this box is taller than me. I begged my boss to let me keep it because I wanted to do something epic with it.

Now what do you do with such a big box? The possibilities are endless; maybe a Tardis or a castle with a drop down moat. All great ideas, but not very Christmassy. Then the perfect idea struck: A snowman toss game.

Make sure you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas, and don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your snowman toss game you will need:

  • Cardboard box (it doesn’t need to be that big, any size will do)
  • Box cutter or scissors
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil
  • Newspaper


Draw your snowman onto your box, then cut out circles inside its body, head or where ever else you like.

Paint your snowman and leave to dry.

Scrunch up some newspaper to make snowballs. I secured them shut with tape as it makes them easier to throw.

When I showed EC and YC this game after school they squealed with delight (although EC did later ask when I could make him a castle). We spent maybe 45 minutes playing with this before it descended into mayhem with EC and YC throwing the newspaper snowballs at each other.

To make it more interesting EC assigned amounts to each hole; the harder it was the higher its value.

Pin for later
