With the winter season fast approaching…Make your own Indoor Snowball Game

With the winter season fast approaching, crocheter and knitter’s projects change seasonally. From spring and summer sweaters made of lighter yarns such as bamboo, to sweaters and scarves made of wool and wool blends.

So too do the toys that some of us make. This past summer, I crocheted a water game toy to be used instead of water balloons. You do know that water balloons are a danger for children and animals alike. You remember the water grenades I made right? If not, you can visit that blog right here: How to make your own Water Grenades. Anyhow, making stuffed animals and toys are kind of my thang! LOL!!

The other day while perusing my favorite crochet internet pages, I came across another game toy, this time for WINTER GAMES!! woohoo! ok, so what it is?

Indoor Snowballs! Yup. I found a wicked easy (yes, I said that!) and quick way to make them! And guess what? You can get 12 of them from one skein of Bernat Blanket Yarn, an 8 mm crochet hook and some poly-fill stuffing.

Indoor Snowball Game

With the winter season fast approaching…Make your own Indoor Snowball Game! Here’s how:

Here are the instructions:

  • Make a magic circle with 6 sc (View the video here)
  • increase each sc – 12 sc
  • 1 sc, 1 inc repeated around – 18 sc
  • 2 sc, 1 inc repeated around – 24 sc
  • Next, crochet 2 rounds of sc (each round-24 sc)
  • 2 sc, 1 dec around – 18 sc
  • 1 sc, 1 dec around – 12 sc
  • Stuff your snowball
  • dec 6 times – 6 sc
  • stuff more stuffing in there, make it firm, but no so firm that the snowball is hard.
  • fasten off with a long tail, about 10″
  • using a darning needle, close up the hole, then send the needle through your ball to the other side and tug gently so that there is no point on the ball. Go through a different stitch through to the other side and repeat. Bring yarn for the final pull through and cut the yarn. Make sure that your yarn is inside the ball.

There you are! You now have your first snowball. Just repeat this until you’ve made the number of balls that you desire. Now through them at your loved ones for a fun game of INDOOR SNOWBALL FIGHT!

With the winter season fast approaching … we also realize that we have gifts we need to make for one reason or another.

Daisy Farms Crafts has recently published this beautiful book with over 50 wonderful crochet patterns, many of which you may have seen on Facebook or Pinterest. I bought the book over the weekend and received it on Monday. I have already selected a couple of baby blankets to make since I have friends who are having babies this year. Not only does this book have baby blankets, but they’ve included some hats patterns and potholder patterns as well. This is going to be a very much-loved Crochet Pattern Book in this house!
