Let It Snow

I cut my leftover batting into 1"-wide strips, then roll the strips into balls. This does not require glue, pins, or sewing; I just tuck the ends in as I wrap. After the excitement of opening Christmas presents dies down, the entire family uses the batting balls for an indoor snowball fight. When we finish, we collect the balls to use again next year.
