Bowling is a fun activity for many people, including children, but it doesn’t need to be played just at the bowling alley. Acorns to Oaks, the pediatric therapy division of Kinetic Edge Physical Therapy, is excited to introduce barnyard bowling!
What you need:
How to play:
Set up your bowling pins. Instead of a normal bowling approach, instruct your child with an animal pose to bowl from. This make the game more fun, all while working on gross motor skills, core strengthening, and reflex integration. Reflex integration is critical to develop many skills required of children to perform successfully in school, at home, and at play.
For additional fun, attach these animal pictures to the pins, and then have your child make the animal sounds of the pins he knocks down or discuss different characteristics of the specific animal.
Have fun and may the best barnyard animal win!
