Glow in the Dark Bowling
Glow sticks are the secret behind this nighttime game that the kids will love! It’s perfect for summertime fun and great for a family camping trip. However, you don’t have to reserve this fun glowing game for summer, it’s great for indoor fun as well. Are you hosting a slumber party or having a few friends over to spend the night? Turn off all the lights and enjoy a fun game of indoor bowling!
Aside from some plastic water bottles and glow sticks, you’ll need a good sturdy ball, like a soccer ball, to bowl down your glow-in-the-dark pins. You can find glow sticks in the party aisle at discount department stores, or check your local dollar store.
Parents, you will need:
10 water bottles
10 glow sticks in a variety of colors
Remove any labels from your water bottles. If water bottles are new and still contain water, pour out a little off the top to allow for the glow stick you’ll be adding.
Crack the glow sticks to activate them (according to package directions) and drop one glow stick in each bottle. Replace the lid on the bottle securely.
Line bottles up like bowling pins. The back row should have 4 pins, the next row will have 3, next 2, and finally 1 at the front.
To keep the game fair, especially if you have a range of ages playing, set a distance for each age group. Smaller children are allowed to stand closer to the pins while older kids that need more of a challenge should stand farther back.
Glow in the Dark Bowling is a fun game that can be played year round and will provide plenty of giggles and smiles.
