how to make a quick and easy ice wall for indoor snowball fights. Perfect holiday gift or elf on the shelf idea.

Easy DIY Ice Wall

These are so quick and easy and are perfect for an indoor snowball fight. Our boys, especially our four year old, had a blast with them. In fact, we have had a snowball fight almost every day this week and I must say, the ice walls have really taken the snowball fights up a notch. Plus, it costs less than $10 to make two of them and they can be done in an evening.

Supplies

– 2 28×40 trifold display boards

– Light Blue Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint (I mixed China Blue and Blue Cotton together, but one color would work just fine)

– Foam paint brush

First, I bent the trifold display boards in the opposite direction and placed them under a heavy bin for a few days (this made it possible to use the white side instead of needing to paint the cardboard side with the white paint)

Then I drew lines on with a pencil and once I liked it, I painted over the lines.

That’s it-done. So easy, right?

Our elf, Jingle Bell, and Buzz Lightyear had their own ice walls made out of construction paper and they had their own indoor snowball fight with marshmallows.

If you are interested in buying the indoor snowballs, we have two different sets, the indoor snowball fight set and the snowmen balls in a tin. The first set, looks realistic, but are a bit crunchy and sometimes hurt when you get hit with them. The snowmen balls obviously don’t look as realistic, but are so cute and soft. My younger son loves carrying his around in his bucket. So if you have older kids, I would suggest the first set and younger kids would probably like the second set better.
