Toilet Paper Roll Craft – Bowling

B decided to make this Toilet Paper Roll Craft Bowling Game that he read about in Highlight’s High Five Magazine. It was a success!
Toilet Paper Roll Craft Bowling

How to Make It: 

Cut 5 toilet paper roll tubes in half to make 10 pins.
Put a cupcake liner on top of each tube.
Set up your pins and bowl!
Why I Love This Activity:
Easy to make and set up
Keeping score with 10 pins is a great math introduction to combinations of 10.
The “pins” look like little houses that can inspire pretend play.
