Teach your little toucanoos about reusing materials and recycling what you can, for a greener world and sustainable crafting! Did you know that 80% of plastic bottles never get recycled? So make sure you do your bit… and what better way to do that than a game of bowling?!

Let’s Make The Bowling Alley

You Will Need

What To Do:

1 Cut triangles out of paper and draw or paint faces and hair onto them. If you have other materials then get creative! You could add wool for hair and googly eyes!

2 Fill the bottles with ⅓ water and screw their caps back on. Then, use the tape to stick your decorated triangles onto the bottle.

3 Get bowling! Line up the bottles and roll your ball to knock over as many as you can!

Make sure you have a pen and paper handy to record your points! And don’t forget to practice a special celebratory dance for when you score a strike!
