Activity: Indoor Bowling

Here's a great activity if your family drinks a lot of soda from either 2 liter bottles, or regular cans. And it's probably one of the simplest activities you will ever do.

All you need is a soft ball (a ball that is soft, not a soft ball like a baseball), and EMPTY soda bottles or cans.

Now set up the cans/bottles to be like bowling pins, and voila! You are ready to start bowling! I find that the best place to do it is in a long hallway, since the walls kind of act like "bumpers" for bumper bowling. This helps the smaller kids do better and enjoy it more when playing with big kids. Here's a few ideas if you want to "jazz" up the "pins". And of course the kids would have lots of fun doing this too, and it would make the activity longer! Who doesn't love that?

Perfect for Halloween!

What a great way to keep patriotism in your home even when it's cold outside!

In case you don't know, these are supposed to be Minions from Despicable Me, and Despicable Me 2.

Snowmen, just in time for Christmas!

Another twist you can do is to use a small pumpkin instead of a ball. It makes the game a lot more difficult since the pumpkin doesn't roll straight at all.

Have you done this before? how did it go? Did you take any pictures?
