My kids never sit still for long.  I am always looking for simple yet fun ways to keep them busy.  Gross motor activities are great to keep them moving and improving their large muscle groups.  This snowman ball toss game was a great gross motor activity that kept them busy.  It is also great that we can get this out over and over again to play with.

Supplies/what we used:

I got the balls and bin from dollar tree so I did not spend much to put this together.

How to make a snowman ball toss game:

 

I took my box of Sharpies and drew snowman faces on the balls.  I also drew one on the bucket or bin.  Easy peasy!

 

How to play the game:

 

I sat the snowman bucket on the floor a few feet in front of the kids.  They took turns trying to toss the balls into the bucket.  This was fun for all 3 of my kids ranging in age from 2-6yr.  You could put painters tape on the floor and give out points based on which tape mark they toss it from.  That would be fun for the older kids to add up their points.
