Snowman Bowling!

This was one of those crafts that popped in my head while I lay in bed, trying to eek out some sleep while my insomnia wreaks havoc on me.  Don’t we all love to save a bit of cash, and who doesn’t love adorable things? Well, I have to tell you, I geared this snowman bowling toward kids crafts and games and the ‘tween and teen minions have been playing this game for several days now. Of course, they love younger kids stuff, since we don’t have too many younger kids in our midst. I was not surprised that they asked to play the bowling game after I made it, but it did surprise me that it’s kept their interest for so long, especially since we are back to school from the holidays. After their homework was done, they got the game out to play again.

So really, you don’t need a whole lot here. Six toilet paper tubes, some paint, markers, black cardstock and glue, and of course, some kind of ball that rolls.

First, paint the tubes white, I gave mine about three coats to make them a solid color. Then paint the top 1/4 of the tube black.

I added a strip of black cardstock to the edge of the black. First, no worry about that wiggly paint line, second it makes the hat brim so it’s cuter. Use hot glue or a study thick glue to keep the cardstock in place.

Now you are ready to add the personalities. Use a little chalk for the pink cheeks.

Use a Q-Tip or  new pencil eraser to dot on the orange paint nose, or the black eyes.

Then use markers to add their faces and arms.

When I made the faces, I figured none of the snowmen would be happy that they were going to be hit and knocked down, so I made their expressions match that.

Once I was done decorating them, I added touches of highlights using white fabric paint. I added snow to their hat brims, and highlights on their eyes and noses.

We just used a bouncy ball for the bowling ball. Line them up in a pyramid shape, three in the back, then two, then one in the front.
