Pre-Opening Activity

Gathering Snowballs


As the families gather, present each with a name tag, on which you have left room to write a number. The set-up for this game is a table on which you have placed cotton balls (be sure to have quite a few). You also need either wooden or good sized plastic spoons all the same size. As players enter room have them see how many cotton balls they can gather in an allotted time (10 or 15 seconds) and write their total on their name tag. Remember, with the spoon only; no hands allowed. At the end of the game, award a small prize for the one who collected the most balls.
