kefir bottle bowling


This is a great activity for a rainy day, or a sick day, which is what we are having today! All you need is a ball and some saved containers. I've found that kefir bottles work really well for bowling, and 6 seem to be enough for the game. You can set them up in a 3-2-1 pattern or however your child would like - in a row, 2 by 2, etc.

Optional:
  • Add some dried beans, corn, or rice into the bottles to help keep them from falling over too easily
  • Define your bowling area with something like a yoga mat
  • Keep score: We have a spare count as 10 points, and a strike as 15. Great math practice!
