When the snowfalls arrive, it’s time for some outdoor fun. Building snowmen and scraping up snow for ammo in a snowball fight is loads of fun, but it gets your hands wet. Fortunately, there are plenty of useful and fun snow toys to help you get more out of your winter experience this year.

In this section, we’ll unpack how to choose the best snow toys for your kids. Whether you’re buying them a stocking stuffer for Christmas or want to get them something for fun, there’s plenty of options in thins review.

How Do I Choose the Best Snow Toys for My Kids?

Choosing the best snow toys for your kids might seem like a daunting experience. There are hundreds of fun snow toys available for children, and it’s challenging settling on the best options for your kids. When choosing toys, it’s a good idea to take a minute to think about your purchase before checking out with a bunch of stuff your kids won’t use.

When choosing the best snow toys for kids, follow these guidelines.

What Do They Enjoy Doing in the Snow?

Ask yourself what your kids enjoy doing in the snow. Think back to last year, and remember what they were doing in the park when you took them there on weekends.

Do they enjoy snowball fights, sledding, or building snowmen? Maybe they like doing it all. Choose thoughtful toy options that give your kids hours of fun in the snow. Here are a few ideas to start.

Building Igloos, Snow Castles, and Snowmen

Building with snow is a fun experience. Whether they’re building snowmen or a fort, it’s a great way for kids to get creative and learn valuable life skills. There are plenty of molds and building tools for kids.

There’s no need for them to scrape up snow with their precious little hands. You get snow molds in various designs, and most of them are suitable for the beach when you go on summer vacation next year.


Sledding is an all-time favorite wintertime activity for both boys and girls. Taking to the slopes for a day of fun is a great way for kids to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors. There are dozens of sled designs, from inflatables to traditional toboggans.

Each of them offers a different sledding experience for your kids. We recommend choosing a sled that suits your kid’s physical and entertainment requirements. Younger children will prefer sleds that go in a straight line – it helps them build confidence and coordination.

However, some kids are born natural board riders, and they might want to try out a sled with turning functionality, or a beginner snowboard. If your kid goes crazy when the skateboard section of X-Games comes on TV, they might do well with a snowboard.

Snowball Fights

Starting a snowball fight with friends is one of the best activities for youngsters. However, it’s not so fun to scrape up the snow. It soaks gloves and gets their fingers cold, putting them at risk of frostbite.

A snowball press is a great tool for snowball fights. Press dozens of snowballs in minutes, and spend the afternoon having a war with your children.

Snow Art

Snow art is a great choice for those kids with artistic flair. Some sets come with multiple color markers for the snow, allowing your kids to get creative with their snow toys.

Play a game of tic-tac-toe by drawing a grid in the snow and marking your spots. Create a Christmas design for the lawn or decorate the trees with their artwork.

Stick to Your Budget When Shopping

It’s easy to find yourself getting carried away with all the fun when ordering your kid’s snow toys online. Before you start shopping, set a budget for the exercise. Don’t go beyond the budget, or you might end up ruining Christmas for the rest of the family.

Fortunately, there are plenty of great choices for snow toys online. You get affordable and fun toys for less than $10, allowing you to pick up a few items for your kids.

Tips for Sending Kids Out in the Snow This Winter

Before you give the kid their toys and throw them outside for the morning, make sure they’re ready for fun.

Check that you prepare your kids for the cold weather with the gear they need to enjoy the day.

Follow these safety tips for sending your kids out in the cold weather this festive season.

  • Park or Yard? – Are you going to send the kids to the park or the backyard? If they’re going to the park, make sure you have someone watching them while they play. Adult supervision prevents kids from doing reckless things that result in a trip to the emergency room.
  • Build Layers – Make sure they dress for success when going out in the cold. Layer their clothing in a way that makes it easy for them to remove when they start feeling warm. Playing in the snow causes an increase in body heat, and they’ll need to strip layers as they play.
  • Protect Those Fingers – Remember to get waterproof gloves for your kids. If they get their fingers wet inside the gloves, they’ll start to feel cold. Look for protective gloves with thermal liners for the best performance.
  • Fashionable but Functional – When sending your kids out to the park, make sure you rely on functional winter fashion. Sure, your kids want to look stylish, but it’s more important that they stay warm. If your kids want a say in what they wear, let them choose their winter gear with you when you’re shopping online.
  • Hats for Warmth – Most heat loss occurs through the extremities and the scalp. Look at any kid that’s bee running around for hours in the snow, and you’ll see steam coming from their head when they stop for a minute. A beanie or winter hat prevents heat loss through the scalp, keeping your kids warm and safe this winter.
  • Avoid Danger Zones – Before you let your kids run wild in the park, tale a walk around and assess the area. Look for danger zones when your kids could fall in covered holes or land on hard ice. If this is your first time in the park, make sure you keep an eye on your kids. Leave the tablet at home and either play with your children or watch them from the park bench.
  • Don’t Forget the Sunscreen! – Just because its winter doesn’t mean your kids can’t catch a sunburn. The harsh glare from fresh white powder causes a sunburn fast, and that’s a great way to ruin your kid’s enthusiasm for the outdoors.
  • Glasses or Goggles – As mentioned, the glare from fresh snow is harsh on the face and the eyes. A set of polarized snow goggles cuts the glare and protects their eyes.

Check for Winter Events in Your Area

Read through your local newspaper or search online for events in your area for kids. Take them along and let them mingle with the other children.

Take their toys and teach them the value of sharing with others. Your kids will have a blast, and you’ll feel like proud parents.

Teach them Discipline

Giving your kids a present is cool, but they might not value it as much. Unless you’re planning on buying gifts for Christmas, let your kids work for a set of snow toys.

If you have older children, it’s a good opportunity to teach them the value of work and money. Make them shovel snow on the drive and porch to learn the value of the toys they have.

If they have to shovel the drive for that sled, they’re going to appreciate it more when they’re flying down the slopes.

Snow Toys FAQs

When is it safe for kids to start sledding?

If your kid is 5-years or older, it’s fine for them to take to the slopes themselves. However, make sure they take their helmet! Kids younger than five require adult supervision, and kids 3-years or under require the parent to ride I the sled with them to prevent accidents and injury.

Should my kid wear a helmet when sledding?

Yes, kids need helmets when sledding. Sure, the soft powder might seem friendly, but what if they come off the sled and hit their head on an ice patch. CTE and mTBI are real conditions, and you don’t want your kid to grow up with brain damage. Helmets are cheap, and the best protection your kid will have on the slope. Cuts, scrapes, and broken bones heal, but brain damage is irreversible.

How do I know if my baby is feeling the cold?

Some new parents might feel uncomfortable taking their baby outside into the snow. Babies older than 6-months are fine to take out, as long as you monitor their condition. If your baby has flushed cheeks, they might be too warm or breathe rapidly. If the baby feels cold, they might seem lethargic and have a cold nose and cheeks.

Where is the best place to buy snow toys?

Choose Amazon for your snow toys this year. Amazon offers free shipping with fast delivery for Prime members, and you get buyer protection on your order. Amazon has a fantastic range, with the best prices. If you don’t like your purchase, Amazon offers hassle-free returns.
