Beach Bowling rules
This game will offer the kids plenty of fun. Dig three holes in the sand all of different sizes. The small, medium and large hole needs to be in row. Line the kids up and have them roll a ball towards the holes with the idea of getting it in the smallest hole to win. Awarding higher points for sinking a ball into a smaller hole.
Use any type of ball, but the lighter the ball, the harder it will be to control the ball. (and that is half the fun).
Make several different holes and instead of lining them up, place them randomly so that children learn to use more or less force to adjust their throw. Vary sizes and distances and assign points to each hole based on difficulty.
Have the children throw the ball away from the holes. You can ask them to throw the ball while doing something at the same time that will give them an extra stress, such as throwing the ball while standing on 1 foot, with one arm in the air, or with their backs to the holes, bending down to look between their legs and aiming head down.
There are plenty of possibilities to make the game even more fun.
