Harvest Bowling - FamilyEducation

Harvest Bowling

This pumpkin-filled bowling game will help to develop your child's motor skills.

Activity for an individual child or a group

Age group: 30-40 months

Duration of activity: 20 minutes

Materials:

  • 5 small dried gourds
  • Masking tape
  • 1 or 2 small round pumpkins

Help develop your child's motor skills while exposing him to some fall vegetables. Your child will enjoy exploring the different colors and interesting textures. Look for gourds that are shaped like bottles, with a wide base and thin neck.

  1. Set the gourds up like bowling pins.
  2. Stick a strip of masking tape to the floor to make a start line. This should be quite close to the gourds, as the pumpkins will not roll very far.
  3. Show your child how to roll the pumpkins to knock down the gourds. Don't worry about keeping score.
