We recently had a party at our home. While planning for the party, I noticed that we don’t have any toys or play stuffs to engage the kids. I don’t want them to be left alone watching TV all along. I came up with a couple of thoughts to engage them with indoor games that saved us in the final hour. I had planned for a Pizza party also (which I totally forgot to put up in the excitement :|), memory game with cards & my very own Indoor bowling game :D.

Bowling Pins for this indoor bowling game can be easily made with left over toilet or tissue papers. You may not need to sweat much for this project preparation, but I bet you would afterwards. 🙂 You can engage your kids in the making process & spend “Mom & Me” time wisely. You could also invite the neighbor kids and engage them in your game. 🙂 If you are a kindergarten teacher, you could sure use this idea in your painting class to engage your kids for a whole day – half a day in preparation and the rest for fun game. 🙂

Materials Needed

Tissue Paper Tubes – 7 (Minimum)

X-Acto Knife

Paint – Any color of your/your kid’s choice

Craft paper


Marker or Pen

Stick glue

Preparation Method:

1. Mark & cut Four – 7 inch tubes, Three – 6 inch tubes, Two – 5 inch tubes & one -4 inch from the tissue paper tube with the help of X-Acto knife.2. Arrange the tissue paper tubes as bowling pins in such a way that the tallest ones are in the rear end and the shortest one is in the front.3. Cut a v-shape at one end of all the tissue paper tubes to add a nice look. Let the paint dry. This step is totally optional and you can skip it if you are in a hurry.4. Paint the tubes using a paintbrush with any color of your choice. Mark the numbers in the circularly shaped papers cut from a craft paper or any fancy paper to match the tube color.5. Paste the circular cuttings on the painted tubes and “voila!”, your bowling pins are ready to be  knocked down. 🙂


  1. Make your kids paint the tubes to keep them engaged.
  2. If you don’t want the tubes messy with paint, you could just cover them with any fancy paper & stick it with glue.
  3. You can increase (5,4,3,2,1) or decrease (3,2,1) the pins by adding or reducing a row.
