On a ROLL again - Name Bowling

We just can't wait to get on the roll again!
And learn the letters of our name

Little Mister went bowling for the first time this week. His Aunt Tina and I actually went early one day and we were the only folks there. (I was worried about all the noise, so it worked out perfect.)
He was so excited when he saw all the balls we had to chose from, then bummed because we couldn't keep it!


I took the ball up to the line and he pushed it down the lane. I'm glad they were not busy because the worker had to get it a few times for us. He couldn't push it hard enough to make it roll all the way down. But he had fun! 
I took this new experience and made some learning fun out of it as well. I made some 'pins' from TP rolls covered in colored construction paper. I wrote a letter from his name on each pin.
He would aim at a specific letter or color and launched the ball at it!

Then he started cheating

Then it became a hockey game

BOYS! Gotta love'em!
