No, this is not just going to your local bowling alley to escape the outdoors - that would be taking the easy way out. This is bowling while outdoors! This activity does take some prep but it's worth it. You’ll need 6 -10 plastic bottles [the bigger they are, the easier it may be to play, especially for smaller children], some balloons and a bit of freezer space. The balloons will be used to make your bowling balls. Fill those balloons with water, as big or as small as you wish – keep in mind that the bigger the balloon, the heavier the ball – and place each balloon in a bowl in the freezer. The bowl helps keep the ball round but if you don’t mind a lumpy ball, then just place them in the freezer however you please. Once the ice balloons are officially frozen, you’re almost ready! Remove the tied part of the balloon from the ice ball so it'll roll better. You can take the balloon entirely off but make sure you have waterproof mitts so you don't get your hands wet while you play. Set up the plastic bottles somewhere on a flat surface outside the same way you would for regular bowling. You can pour some water in them to add some weight and keep them from falling so easily – that’s your choice. And now we bowl!
Granted Mother Nature is playing her cruel game of keeping snow around for awhile, this is the perfect time to make snow forts. The weather is just nice enough to make the snow sticky so building forts and snowmen is a piece of cake. So bundle up and make a snow fort, maybe even start a friendly snow ball fight. Try your hand at a snowman building competition. Get creative too! Make a face, add accessories, make it fun.
