Birthday Candle Bowling

Birthday Candle Bowling craft

Channel kids' pre-party excitement into making Birthday Candle Bowling. Design the game along with them to show your enthusiasm for creativity!

  • 1.

    Gather as many clean, dry quart milk cartons as the birthday child's new age. Staple the top of each carton closed.

  • 2.

    Measure construction paper to fit around each carton, including the top. Cut with Crayola® Scissors.

  • 3.

    Cover the paper candle with a thick layer of Crayola Twistables designs. Use the tip of your scissors or the edge of a Crayola Marker cap to carve lines across each design. Experiment with different designs and patterns on each candle. Attach the candle coverings to the milk cartons with Crayola® School Glue.

  • 4.

    Cut or tear red, orange, and yellow tissue paper into flames. Staple the pretend flames to the top of each candle.

  • 5.

    To play Birthday Candle Bowling, set up the birthday candle pins at the end of a hallway or on a sidewalk. Players take turns rolling a lightweight ball at the pins.
