Our Happy Meal prizes and Dollar Store figurines are coming in handy with Toy Bowling. My son has been wanting to go bowling and started to learn some of the lingo, like “strike” and I need a “spare”. So I thought it would be fun to practice a little at home.

With our bucket of toys, we found the perfect “pins” to use. The larger toys are better at standing. Then we counted them out and placed them in the bowling triangle, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Then we bowled. The kids had fun crashing down their toys and even setting them back up. Ursala didn’t work that great as she was too low to the ground, but the Ninja Turtle and Shrek toys toppled over perfectly.

So instead of throwing your Happy Meal toys away, bowl them over instead.
