Playing in the snow is the best, and I have just the thing that will make snow days even better. This snowball maker is exactly what you need for perfect snowballs. From here on out, you'll win every snowball fight.

"Too much fun! I bought these for my 30+ year old son and 3 year old grandson. The first time we tried them, the snow was dry and fluffy and they did not work. The moment I heard that we were having a heavy, wet snow, I headed out doors. In seconds, I had all these perfect snowballs! I love this...may have to order more for Christmas gifts next year."
