How to make printable games more challenging in a group setting:

If you are playing this game during a holiday party with a larger number of people, you might want to incorporate some of the following ideas in order to make the activity a bit more competitive and fun.

Set a timer.
Set a timer for 3-5 minutes. One the timer starts running, everyone has to try and come up with as many words as they can using only the letters the word snowstorm.

Once time runs out, whichever player was able to come up with the most amount of words, wins the game!

Turn it into a scattergories game
In this version of the game, all of the players will still try and come up with as many words as they can during the given timeframe. But they must make sure to come up with the most unique words that they can think of.

Once the time runs out, each player will go around the room and read their answers to the group and compare them. If there is another player that has the same answer as you, you both must cross that word off of your list. Whichever player has the most words the end, wins the game!

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
