We hadn’t been bowling all year so the boys were super excited for this Letter!
We began the day with morning circle and today’s weather word was Meteorologist.
We read Mitchell Goes Bowling (Durand) which was actually a very cute book. The child’s determined personality resonated with our group and the Dad in the story set a great example for his son.
We headed to our work table to work on Letter B and bowling themed worksheets from our work books.
When they were finished with their work, we grabbed some BOWL bingo boards and mini bowling ball markers and played a few rounds of bingo.
We took a short break for a bowling themed snack and the kiddos thought these were so cute (and of course yummy!). I simply used some washi tape on our glass milk bottles, grabbed a paper straw and hung a keebler cookie upside down on it to resemble a bowling ball. Yum-o!
We headed out to our back patio so the kids could paint their very own miniature bowling sets. While the lone girl of the group kept hers nice and neat (as well as my meticulous Lucas lol), the remaining boys poured the paint in the tray and rolled the pieces around in the mixture. Sheesh. I find the enderman colored set the most entertaining!
While the kiddos released some energy out back, I whipped up some bowling pin and ball sandwiches for lunch! The pin shaped sandwich was organically cut and the fruit leather strips added just the right touch. The bowling ball was created by a cookie cutter circle shape and the three blueberries are quite the finishing touch.
After that, we headed straight to our participating Kids Bowl Free location (Silva Lanes) and grabbed a lane for a free game of bowling.
What a super fun way to incorporate some learning and education into a great American past time!
