Twelve Days of Healthy Holidays: Day 3 – “Put the Nose on the Snowman” Game

Day 3 of The Fit Fridge’s Twelve Days of Healthy Holidays brings winter fun indoors as we “put the nose on the snowman.”  Don’t forget to post comments after you’ve tried the game, and one person who posts will be randomly selected next Wednesday to receive a prize pack of gift tags and packaging to use with the healthy holiday activities I share over the next few days!

Put the Nose on the Snowman

Goal: To improve accuracy with throwing or striking.

Grades: Preschool-6th

Supplies: 8 1/2″ x 11″ (or larger) size picture of a snowman, small foam balls (orange for a “carrot nose” if possible) and racquets or paddles

Description: Tape snowman onto a wall.  Have students stand a few feet from the wall and hit the snowman using the ball and racquet.  Alternatively, students can toss a ball or and orange beanbag at the snowman, aiming for the nose.

Adaptation suggestions: Increase the size of the snowman and decrease the distance between the students and the wall.  Use appropriately-sized racquets or paddles based on the age of the students.
