Bottle Bowling
What You'll Need
  • 10 empty water bottles
  • 10 glow sticks
  • colorful tape
  • paint markers
  • rice or dried beans
  • 2 sealable plastic bags
  • 2 glow bracelets (optional)

What to Do

1. Use colorful tape and paint markers to decorate 10 empty water bottles. 

2. Place a glow stick inside each bottle. (Activate the glow sticks just before use.) 

3. Make 2 bean bags. (See directions below.)  

 
How To Play

Set up the bottles like bowling pins. Player 1 tosses two bean bags at them. Count the bottles that were knocked down, then reset them. Player 2 goes. Whoever knocks down the most bottles in the round earns a point. The first player to reach 5 points wins.  

*** Add some water to each bottle for a greater challenge.

To Make Bean Bags 

1. For each bean bag, cut the sides of a sealable plastic bag to make a small octagon. 

2. Cover the bag with colorful tape, leaving the top open. 

3. Fill the bag with rice or dried beans. To play in the dark, put a glow bracelet inside. Seal the bag.
