I know I’m not the only person who hid snowballs in the freezer, trying to save them to play with for the warm summer months. Spoiler alert: I don’t actually know if this worked, because every time I put one in the freezer, my mom would throw it away. (I still think it’s a good idea!)
Now, kids aren’t limited to snowball fights in the winter. The SnoBall Battle Pack, from Zimpli Kids, lets kids make their own snow for year-round snow ball fights. Aww yisss.
The consistency of SnoBalls reminds me of Gelli Baff, but is definitely more suited to play with outside, perfect for outdoor play during the summer months!
Making the snow itself is a lot easier than I thought. Just add powder to a measured amount of water, and don’t take your eyes off of it because you can see the powder expand and become the pseudo-snow in seconds! Did I just become Elsa?!
Much to my surprise, the snow looks authentic, just like snow that brings me back to the fond memories of snow days. If you look closely, you can see the tiny crystals that make the snow seem genuine! The material is really fun to just play with your hands, and it’s really soft and fluffy—just what snow feels like, without the frigid coldness! The SnoBalls also leave a slimy residue on your hands (and we all know how much kids love slime).
Each SnoBall Battle Pack box comes with ten bags of White SnoBall powder, and the whole box is guaranteed to make at least 60 snow balls, so the value for this is incredible!
Parents: I know what you’re thinking. SnoBalls are guaranteed to be safe because it’s made from stain-free, non-toxic, environmentally safe, and non-irritant materials. It’s also painless to dispose. They are fully degradable, so they can be left to break down naturally, or you can speed up the process and dilute it with water—just be careful, because the solution gets very slippery. They can also be thrown away!
The SnoBalls Battle Pack takes the waiting out of wintertime to make every day a snow day.
