Indoor Bowling

Updated: Jul 22, 2020

This is a perfect indoor activity when your little one has some pent up energy to release!

Ages: 2Y+

Development Focus:

Early math skills, gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination & spatial awareness

When preparing home activities for your little ones, it is always good practice to save materials that you may otherwise toss or recycle.

Milk jugs and water bottles can come in handy on many occasions! Set aside a box to save your home materials and pull it out when you need extra inspiration for your little ones' activities.

Now, onto bowling:

Fill your bottles with water and label them with numbers 1 - 6 to make bowling pins. Line the bottles in a V-shape.

Be sure that there are no breakables around!

Hand your child a ball (soccer balls work great) and instruct your child to knock over the bowling pins with the ball by rolling it on the floor.

This is actually harder said than done for children!


1. Pour some water out in case the pins are too heavy for your child to knock over.

2. Encourage your child to step closer / further from the pins to decrease or increase the challenge.

3. Prepare your space in advance so that there is no anxiety about breaking something indoors. This way you can focus on having FUN!
