Snowflakes

This Snowflakes activity & project also includes:

First choose three people to be taggers, and two players to be freers. Give each tagger a white foam ball, and give each freer a yellow ball. The rest of the class runs around the playing area. If a runner is tagged with a white ball, then they are frozen into a snowflake and must lay down on the ground in the shape of a star. The freers run around and tag or melt the snowflake with the yellow ball and the game continues.
