- Take a snowball fight anywhere with Groupon’s reusable origami snowball
A snowball becomes even more surprising when it’s thrown indoors—and isn’t made of snow at all. With Groupon’s template and just a few simple folding instructions, you can transform a flat piece of paper into a never-melting source of year-round fun.
Most forms of weather are ephemeral. A child can’t make the outline of an angel in a puddle or sling a handful of wind across the yard. Snow, though, can be touched and held. Perhaps for that reason, society has long turned a blind eye to its flaws. Look closer at the average snowball and you’ll find some disturbing truths. It’s unpleasantly cold. It can contain dirt and small rocks. It is all too ready to decay into cold water at a moment’s notice.
Groupon’s Origami Snowball forms a solution to these problems with help from a pair of nimble hands. Using the ancient Japanese art of paper folding, you can make a craft that will first startle, then impress friends when launched at the back of their heads. Unlike old-fashioned water-based snowballs, the Origami Snowball is soft and lightweight, so there’s little risk of injury. And because it won’t melt, crumble, or burst into flames on the first day of spring, you can extend the wintry fun for hours or months.
