 Snowman bowling pins

  1. Remove the bottle caps and paint them black. 
  2. Pour some white paint into the drink bottles, replace caps, and swirl the bottles to coat the inside with white.  Add water to thin the paint out if necessary.
  3. Using the black construction paper, cut out a circular “hat brim” for each snowman.  In the center of each circle, cut out a hole just slightly bigger than each bottle cap.  Fit the paper circles over the bottle caps.
  4. Use the black and orange markers to draw a face and buttons onto the bottles. 
  5. Optional: Tie on a fabric scarf or decorate with stickers too!

Snowball bowling ball

  1. Put the tennis ball into the toe of the sport sock.
  2. Carefully fold the sock over the ball as many times as needed to keep a nice round shape.

Arrange the pins, grab your snowball and you’re ready to roll!
