Bowling On Thanksgiving Date Night
OPTION 2 – Make it a Bowling Thanksgiving Date Night. If your Thanksgiving is already packed full and your stomaches are too round to play (you ALL know what I am talking about!), then make this Turkey Bowling Game a fun date night! You can even make it a group date by grabbing a few of your favorite couples. Start the evening with decorating your own pins and finish with a little friendly competition.
No matter which option you choose, bowling on Thanksgiving is sure to bring a good time! Here is how the game is played:
Once all of the the “pins” are prepped then you will need to set them up in a large grassy area. Then, get ready to bowl the afternoon away!
You can always play a normal game of bowling, but where is the fun in that? To help get the laughter going we have included fun playing cards in our Turkey Bowling Game printable pack!
Once you have bowled your last frame then it’s time to tally up your scores and pass out the awards (everything is included in the printable pack)! This is seriously such a fun family game that you’re sure to have a Bowling Thanksgiving tradition from here on out!
