A simple activity to bowl you over!

By: Leann Presley

The key to building your child’s core strength and eye hand coordination is making it fun.  And what’s more fun than bowling?  It’s easy to do right in your own home.  For “pins,” have your children collect used plastic bottles (soda, juice, etc) and lids. Fill the bottles with water, add a splash of food coloring ,a dash of glitter or even a glow stick for nighttime bowling.  Set up your “pins”, and use whatever ball you can find (basketballs and soccer balls are perfect) to roll down the lane, down the hall, or down the lawn.  You can mix it up, too, by using more or less water in the bottles or by using larger or smaller bottles.

This simple game helps work on your child’s core strength and helps with eye hand coordination, as well. It’s a great way, too, to teach taking turns with friends. Enjoy your home bowling alley!
