Welllll, we got creative. And this day it was paper towel bowling!
All you need is: Paper Towels Rolls (or empty soda containers, or even stacks of toilet tissue), and a large ball
River was into it! I tried to get her to back up, but she noticed that greatly decreased her score. And she didn't like that. Imagine ;)
The boy tried a different approach, but he was soooo happy when he knocked the pins down! Absolutely worth dirty napkins :)
All in all, a great game to fill an empty afternoon - good for counting, good for eye hand coordination. Lots of fun :)
Rescuing our kids from the cries of "I'm bored!" - one of the things mamas do.
