Throw some snow

Season:Winter
Duration:2 hours or less
Activity:For kids - things to do before you're 11¾

The woodlands of Allan Bank at Grasmere are a fab place for a snowball fight – sneak up on your opponents through the mysterious tunnel or drop snow on their heads from the viewing platform.

Top tip: Snow that squeaks when you walk on it won't make a great snowball because it's too dry. Listen to the snow before you throw and go for the slightly soggier stuff.
