I wanted to share a fun little activity we did during our Christmas clean up. I found this activity on Pinterest. It is more for younger toddlers, but it looked so fun I couldn't help myself.
I know a lot of families out there added the new Elf on a Shelf tradition to their homes. I thought it was pretty cute and enjoyed watching all the things other people were doing with their elf. We did not get an elf, but it got my wheels spinning. I had a bunch of white furry fabric and some plastic eyeballs. Aubrey also had a dream of throwing snowballs on Christmas morning and my son is completely ninja obsessed at the moment. And when he is obsessed, so is Aubrey. It all came together and a new Christmas tradition was born.
Meet the Ninja Snowballs!
These fuzzy little guys are so cute. We ended up wrapping them each separately with a note that says, "I am a ninja snowball. Throw me at someone!" Next year, I doubt they will need a note ;). I make sure to hand one out to each person in the family, so we all get a chance. There is one that is bigger than the other three. It was fun! There were random snowball fights every day until I packed them up for next year. No one was too happy about that. I guess that means they were a success!
