Host the Winter Olympics

Gather the neighbor kids and host your own version of the Winter Games, including snowball "archery" (pick a target and see whose arm is most accurate); a three-legged boot race through the snow; and snow "hurdles."

Best for kids aged: 5 and up

What You’ll Need: ribbons or medals; snow; and your imagination!

Directions: Select a few games to play, and divide kids into teams (or countries) as necessary. You can provide gold, silver and bronze medals if you want, or just congratulate the winners of each event. Afterwards, give everyone hot cocoa as a consolation prize.
