Marble Bowling

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Children's Busy Book

In marble bowling, children must hit the target marble in a tense competition with one another.


Materials

  • Chalk or string
  • Marbles

Directions

  1. This game requires two players. Use chalk or string to mark a line behind which players must stand when they shoot their marbles.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Have the players take turns shooting the target marble and trying to hit it.
