If you do not have anyone to work with you can still play this on your own. Give yourself a time limit 60 seconds and see how many times you can know the skittle down. Cn you beat your score?

 

  • Find some objects around the house you can use as a target for bowling i.e. skittles, water bottles, toilet rolls, small empty boxes.

Arrange the targets into a triangle. How many can you knock down? How far away can you be?

 

  • Put away the equipment.
