I received an email from Claire of Handmade Parade asking about summer activities; stitching and otherwise. Handmade Parade is looking for fun things to do this summer, for kids, adults and crafters. This past Wednesday I found a fun activity that allowed me to be creative and brought enjoyment and imagination to my kids (a winning summer combination in my book).
I present you with:
Bowling At Home- Hales Style
I made the kids some fabric balls using Tanya’s pattern. I just rummaged through my scraps and let the kids pick what they liked.
For pins we lined up plastic cylinders from a marble tower game we have, but really anything lightweight would work (even empty water bottles). The kids love setting it up and “bowling”.
My son also tried to “jungle” them while I made pancakes this morning. What is summer without a few strawberries thrown in!
