hide candy in the yard, and send them out in a search...it will be a hit and take up some time, trust me : ) The biggest hassle are snow clothes, but they will love it.
Beanbag toss is always a hit too. Make your own for younger children, use a snowman, top, middle, bottom circles...doesn't get easier than that!
Hot potatoe.."pass the snowball"..wrap a little gift 100 times, sit in a circle and play music, when music stops one child unwraps until all layers are removed, and that child wins the gift!
Freeze dance is a necessity for the photographs. Play music=dancing, when music stops they have to freeze in silly positions. Vary it with silly freeze dance, slow freeze dance, fast..etc...have a camera ready!
mini powdered donuts make great snowball snacks.
Pin the carrot on the snowman!
