We Play - Indoor Bowling


Don't forget to stop by Childhood 101 We Play where you can find lots of other great play ideas....

We     Play

This doesn't have to be played inside but we certainly did and Neevah had a great time. All you need is a few empty soft drink bottles and a ball we added a little bit of coloured water to each bottle for fun (the more water you add the harder the bottles are to knock over).

Neevah bowling - she didn't have much luck rolling the ball so she took to bouncing it

Down go the bottles

Strike!

Counting how many bottles she knocked down

I love it! The colored water bottles add a nice touch that preschoolers will be interested in:)

We play bowling in the hallway too! I really love your homemade skittles - so colourful and fun.

The coloured water did look really good it was a last min thing originally we were going to decorate the bottles but we ran out of time. I loved how this incorporated counting (how many did you knock down?) and colours (I am going to knock over the green bottle). It was a hit all around :)

Hmmm .. don't open page about indoor bowling with child on your knee unless you have some empty bottle to make pins! Lesson learnt! LOL

Looks like fun, and Princess agrees :)

Love the coloured water in the bottles, makes for a twist. Will have to jot this down for one day (maybe soon with all the rain we're having)

I hear you Becky - we tried to go to the park today but got rained out LOL

Great idea! How fun! We will have to try this. Thanks for sharing...most likely, will try it out when we have some friends come over for a playdate.

We also play bowling in our hallway- purpose built for easy strikes. I think the coloured water is bright and brilliant.
