 after getting on the appropriate gear for some snowball action. go outside and find a fresh pile of fluff. 

reach your hands in and grab a little more than two handfuls.

Step 3: Third

Smash the two handfuls into each other. the tighter you make it, the more damgae points that you will get. you can not exceed 200p though or you will get disqualified.

Step 4: Fourth

take out a ruler and measure the widest part of your creation.

the official size of an SLW snowball is in the range of 3.5 to 4.5 inches. 

Step 5: Fifth

 add more snow to the ball if its not quite big enough. repeat step 3.

Step 6: Last

 once you have the perfect snowball. find a wall or another being on this planet and throw it in their direction.

If you hit the person, you win. good job.

Hmm...... I think I'll make a slush ball with rocks and salt in the middle then cover it in normal snow. Btw, 6 GRADERS FTW!

This really does not need to be an instructables. BTW i perfer making a normal snow ball and lighting a fire cracker, sticking the firecracker inside the snowball and THEN throwing it.

 tbh i was expecting some auto snowball maker... oh well

here is another tip, if you rare bullied by someone, put a rock in the middle of the snowball
in all the frenzy, he wount know what hit him ;)

I made a snow ball out of the gravely snow that comes from the street, then I cover it with clean snow so it looks like an average snowball. >:D

 if you want to take it to the next level, put some salt in it

diy chemical warfare

grue (author)TheRecreationist2010-02-20

wouldn't the snow melt because of the salt?

watermelonhead (author)grue2010-02-21

Yes, but not instantly

TheRecreationist (author)grue2010-02-21

you gta be fast, no doubt

artillery versions we used contained chinese firecrackers of 120 db
was like war movies... 5,4,3, fire!

explodes marvelously in mid air, having a psychological impact on the enemy
if surrounded with gravel, it gives a shelling effect too, salt would be the opposite of  coup de grace

 if you "were" -.-

i covered a rock in snow

When I was young, I used to make 2 snowballs.  I would lob the first one very high, yet accurate.  Then when the poor boy would look up at the snowball in the clouds, I would reach for the second, and fire it.  I like to remember  that both snowballs hit the poor boy every time.

"get out a ruler and..."

Rocks are dirty pool -- but a slushball, now that's a bit of evil fun. I refer my fellow instructionistas to Bill Cosby's "Junior Barnes" skit.

Woolen gloves are not the "appropriate gear" Ideally you should have thin woolen gloves with latex or rubber gloves of the top to keep you warm and dry. Working hands and arms are essential in a snowball fight.
