Backyard Bowling

With the hot weather, our family has been guzzling down lots of bottled water.  I ran across this idea and thought it was a great way to reuse some of the bottles that have collected in our recycling.  We made bowling pins!

Collect 10 water bottles and take off their labels.  If there is some stickiness left from the label, Disolve-It works wonders when removing goo (someday I will have to do even more of a plug for that product and list some of the ways it has saved us.) 

Fill the bottles with water and add 5-10 drops of food coloring to each bottle.  If you plan on keeping this game around for a while, or would like to use it indoors, spread glue on the mouth of the bottle before putting the cap on.

Line up the pins and use any type of heavier ball such as a soccer ball.   Let the good times roll!
