In marble bowling, children must hit the target marble in a tense competition with one another.
- Chalk or string
- This game requires two players. Use chalk or string to mark a line behind which players must stand when they shoot their marbles.
- The first player stands behind the line and shoots a marble any distance. This marble becomes the target marble, which the second player tries to hit by shooting a marble toward it.
- If the second player's marble lands within a hand span of the target marble, he wins the target marble. If the second player's marble doesn't land within a hand span of the target marble, the first player wins the second player's marble.
- Have the players take turns shooting the target marble and trying to hit it.
