I made these as neighbor gifts for Christmas, but I bet you could use them as gifts during the summer as well. Especially when there isn't any real snow on the ground to throw. I saw the idea of an indoor snowball fight in a catalog, but of course the price was exorbitant. Being the crafty girl that I am, I thought to myself, "I can make that!" Of course I did forget that I can't really sew. Luckily, since these spent most of the time after I gave them winging around the room, no one seemed to notice how lopsided they really were!
