Homemade Bowling Set!

We have been having SO much fun bowling today with the new bowling set I made for the girls. In October I saw this great idea over at The Terrys, to make a homemade bowling set using Gerber Puffs Containers! I thought this was such a great idea, and got busy saving up puffs containers and recruiting old containers from friends!I was so excited to finally have 10 containers! Then I just peeled off the wrappers and washed them out. After they were clean and dry, I filled them with crinkled up heavy paper to give them added weight and hot glued the lids one. To give them the red lines to make them look more like bowling pins, I just used a red sharpie to trace the three grooves in the containers.

Molly is getting pretty good at knocking the pins down, and Nora is enjoying crawling into them. :) How fun are these! Head over to The Terrys to see her great idea!


  1. Thanks for linking up to my blog! Your bowling set turned out great! It is one of my kids favorite things to play with.

  2. That is a great idea. I have a few saved from when Emma was younger, thinking I could find a use for them someday. Now I need to get a set :)

  3. What a great idea!! I will have to remember this for when Bryce is older :)
