Bowling Fun

Bowling on a rain day. It was a lot of fun. We rented a lane and shoes which was more that I thought it would be but I feel bowling is a right of passage. You have to try it once.


Bowlero


We went to Bowlero in Lynnwood. Each lane had it’s own large tv and ours was playing the Minion movie which we didn’t really have time to watch. After one game, all our wrists were tried. I didn’t really know we were going to exercise our arms when we went out there. It was a good workout.


Fun for the Whole Family


My toddler helped me with my turn. The bowling lane included a ramp that she could push the bowling ball down onto our lane. I had to hold the ramp because she would push it with all her might.

My 5 year old daughter didn’t use the ramp and actually got a couple of spares. Totally on luck. She won’t watch the ball going down the lane. She would walk back then wait until the pins fell before turning around. It was pretty cute.

With every pin that fell, there was adding and subtracting to learn or just counting. How many pins are left? Counting for the toddler and kindergarten.

Hope you find a fun outing for those raining days. Summer is almost here. I’m counting the days.

Board Games with Math for Kids

To kick off spring break, Amazon dropped off our monthly subscription to their STEM club. Board games that promote math by adding and/or subtracting as your pawn moves through the game. These games we played with Alexa, whom kept my 5 year old honest and me too.


Math is Fun


We started with Ocean Raiders, a game designed for 2 to 4 players and ages 5 and up. My toddler and I teamed up against my 5 year old daughter but we couldn’t beat her lucky streak rolling the dice. She was able to move her blue barrel to the end without landing on too many whirlpools that suck you back to the beginning.

The second game in our Amazon box was Cloud Hoppers which is my favorite of the two. The objective of the game is to lead your two aliens to the ground level of a planet to retrieve a beautiful flower. By using subtraction, your aliens start at their spaceship on tile 50 and you have to subtract your dice rolls to make it to the planet’s flower on number 20. This is designed for kids over the age of 6 years old but with my help my girls loved playing this game too.

I look forward to sharing our spring break adventures with you tomorrow. Happy Monday!
