Harvest Bowling


Bowling with pumpkins and gourds is a great family or party activity that will also help develop your child's motor skills. Look for gourds that are shaped like bottles for an authentic bowling experience.

Materials:
  • 5 small dried gourds
  • Masking tape
  • 1 or 2 small round pumpkins
Directions:
  • Set the gourds up like bowling pins.
  • Stick a strip of masking tape to the floor to make a start line. This should be quite close to the gourds, as the pumpkins will not roll very far.
  • Show your child how to roll the pumpkins to knock down the gourds. Don't worry about keeping score.

Eating a colorful diet or fruits and veggies helps ensure your child is getting the nutrients he needs to keep his brain sharp while at school. Aim to pack three or more different colored foods in his lunch (or for snack) every day.
