How To Make The Perfect Snowball

A Vintage Nerd Vintage Blog 1940s Winter in New York Vintage Lifestyle

Today it snowed enough that the kiddies were able to play a bit in our backyard. My youngest took out a toy that we recently purchased on a trip to a old fashioned mom and pop candy store. I will be sharing with you all more about this neat little shop but for now I would like to share with you a toy that makes the perfect snowballs.

Since it was purchased in this retro shop I figured it was an old fashioned toy. My research online has led me to believe that it is indeed a vintage styled toy but unfortunately I have not been able to find out the year it was made. If any of you know, could you share it with me? Thanks!

Each of my children were given a bucket and shovel but it was the snowball maker that stole the show. I cannot tell you how neat this toy is. It is so easy to use. You just scoop up the snow by opening the toy like a set of tongs. Once the snow is inside it forms a perfect round snowball.

I think this will be our go-to toy for this winter and we may even have to grab two more for our kiddies.

After a little snow fight my children decided to make their first little snow people. I didn't have anything set up for this so my husband and I got creative. He grabbed some little sticks from the yard and I grabbed some things from our miscellaneous drawer in the kitchen and some left over candy canes and a masterpiece was created!

  1. Haha, I love their snow people! They're so cute!

  2. Those snow people! I could never make the traditional round ones, so maybe I'll find a bucket and give something like this a try. Too fun.
