  • Felt
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Wooden dowels

Instructions

Snowgusta Mini Golf - Step 1

1. Stomp down an area around each hole (hard-packed snow holds color better than fluffy snow does).

2. Mix water and green food coloring in a spray bottle, then spray the mixture on the packed snow. (Note: Unless you want green jeans, don't lie or sit on the sprayed snow.)

3. Once the green is set, add wacky obstacles like these: pool toy rings or a hula hoop sunk halfway in the snow; a toboggan or skateboard upside down; a trash-can lid; a tunnel through the bottom of a snowman. And don't forget to make holes: recycled plastic containers sunk in the snow.

4. To make a flag, cut a triangle from one color of felt and a number from another. Glue them together. Then tape or staple the flag around a dowel or ski pole. If necessary, wrap a rubber band around the dowel under the flag to keep it from slipping.

Tips:

Use a rubber ball and hockey-stick "nine iron" (a broom also works) to sink aces like the pros.
