You could do a relay race with spoons holding snowballs (styrofoam balls from the craft store).
Moms recommend the following deals from Mamapedia:

I saw a cute one where you take popsicle sticks and make a cross then an x so there are eight points, then decorate them like a snowflake. you can paint them and put glitter or foam shapes on them. really easy.

check out oriental trading company for some craft ideas. they sell packs that make 12-24 crafts per "unit" and they are pretty cheap. my friend is a teacher and she uses them for almost all of her craft projects for her students. happy party!

I remember one year we had some really bad weather and school was delayed by a couple hours. Even when the kids did show up for school, so many parents decided to keep their children at home. I sent my child. (I had to work!) Anyhow the teachers made the day so great for the kids who showed up. I think there was like 9 kids. The teachers put down some blue paper on the floor which represented a frozen pond. They divided the children onto either sides of the pond and gave them snowballs(balled up paper). The kids had a blast having an indoor snowball fight. Nobody got hurt, wet, or cold. And......they didn't have to get dressed up in all that snow gear! Have fun!
