Hello!
 
Would you say for kids throwing snowballs - They are snowball fighting?
It really sounds strange to me.
Or would you say they ´re in a snowball fight.
The thing is I need a sentence to be in present continuous, as we are describing a picture and working on ´am,is,are+verb+ing ´ rule.
Thanks in advance!

I agree with Mary, and her sentences are in present continuous, which is what you need.
