Snow Ball Fights with Snow Ball Maker

Date:  Dec 18, 2014

This is the snow ball maker.

You can buy it at Hokkaido for S$16 or S$30 depending on where you get it.  They usually sell it at the Snow Activity Store.

Or you can get it from Taobao for CNY$16.  (They are cheaper one too).


No matter where you buy it, it’s worth while to bring it all the way to Hokkaido.

Of course, you need the “mommies” to do the hard work.  Let them be the one to “make” the snow balls.


Very easy to do.  “Kiap” the snow together, and the snow ball is formed.


These are the snow ball bullets.


First you must train the kids to throw properly.


Just outside the Rusutsu hotel back door, you will see a lot of all these round round sign board.  That will be the kids training targets.


Of course, the women make the bullets, the kids throws them.  And what does the men do?  

Well, we are the “moving targets”.  Yeah!


Let the snow ball fights begin!


The kids will sure had a lot of fun!

The only risk is the camera.  Let’s fight.

During winter time, I can ensure you an activity where you will get 100% smiles and laughters from your kids.

That means, almost all the photos you taken, there are 100% sure smiles in the photos.


This is an activity about S-P-E-E-D.

Kids love to race.  When there are happy, you know it.  See how Kay Kay stick his tongue out.

Now, Jay Jay going to try the daring move.

IMG 1011

He is going to overtake...

IMG 1012

Overtake from the other side??

IMG 1014

And bang…. one down...

IMG 1016

two down..  with a big smile.

IMG 1019

Kids just love to speed and crash into other.  

Parents, just relax.  (My wife a bit kan-ciong) when they fall.  It is OK one.

Now, 4 race together.

IMG 1040

 and 4 crash together.

IMG 1045

and 4 try to save themselves from the crash.

IMG 1046

and all down.

IMG 1096

It is very fun.  Let’s walk back up again.  You do realise that the kid have tremendous energy and never say tired when they bring their toboggan back up to the slope.  Yeap, like that walk up, slide down many times until the sky turns dark.

It’s time to go home.
