Glow Bottle Bowling

Glow Bottle Bowling (6)

Long summer nights are tailor-made for staying up late, and I love finding activities to heighten the excitement. So on the heels of a few other glow-in-the-dark sports, tonight it was time to go bowling!

During the day, we decorated empty plastic water bottles with colorful tape. You could also use paint markers, but Travis preferred just to use the tape. He loved making diagonal stripes on his!

After dark, we activated glow sticks and dropped one in each bottle.

Line up in bowling formation, then take aim with bean bags! You can use regular bean bags, or glowing ones leftover from a bean bag toss.

Travis loved it so much he insisted on multiple rounds. We played several variations, like lining them up in different ways or sliding the bean bags along the floor instead of throwing them.

I think we’ll need a new set of glow sticks so we can play again tomorrow night!

If your kids are older and want a greater challenge, fill the bottles with water to make them harder targets.
