Snow Bomb Trivia Challenge

Instructions: Before the game prepare trivia questions (or use the ones below) and “snowballs”. Snowballs are blown up blue or white balloons - half of which are filled with shaving cream. Making “loaded” snowballs is easy, just spray some shaving cream in them before you blow them up. Pick volunteers to come forward and sit on a chair on stage one at a time. Ask them a trivia question. If they answer correctly they win a prize. If they answer incorrectly they will pick a "snowball" from the pile you prepared beforehand and pop the snowball while holding it on their lap. Vary the difficulty of the questions from very easy to nearly impossible to answer just for fun! Play continues until you are out of questions.
