Set up a fun and crazy bowling game in your home or yard that really lets the children have a ball! Instead of standard bowling pins and balls, this game is played using unusual balls and odd items as the bowling pins.
At the Party:
- Gather unusual items from around your house that can be used for bowling.
- Try empty milk cartons, a plastic vase, rubber rain boots, tall books, cereal boxes, and empty cans.
- You will also need odd bowling balls such as tennis balls, soccer balls, or golf balls.
- Set up ten of the odd-ball bowling pins in the triangle format used at a bowling alley.
- Have the children line up and take turns bowling with the odd balls to see how many items they can knock down. Let them have two rolls on each turn.
- Then use another of your odd balls and start the game over.
- Continue play until each child has had a turn with each odd-ball.
