Another pinner said:  One of our newest family Christmas traditions is an evening of Snowball Games These games are minute to win it style games which are easy to set up with only a few supplies needed and fun for the whole family. They can be adapted to larger groups so they are great for classroom parties, family holiday celebrations or Christmas parties.
