Reindeer Bowling Craft & Game

In the name of keeping the kids entertained during the holidays, Reindeer Bowling is the gift that keeps on giving: it keeps them busy while constructing the game itself, and once the glue has dried they’ll enjoy bowling for hours! 

Things You'll Need: 

  • 10 brown plastic cups
  • 20 googly eyes (10 pairs)
  • Brown construction paper
  • 1 red and 8 black craft pompoms
  • Glue
  • Small sports ball or tennis ball


  1. Cut out 10 pairs of antlers from the brown construction paper.
  2. Set plastic cups upside down, then glue the antlers to the backs of the cups.
  3. Glue googly eyes to the front of the cups.
  4. Add black pompoms for the noses on all the deer except one—Rudolph gets a red pompom for his nose.
  5. Allow glue to dry, then set up as bowling pins and roll away! Use a lacrosse ball or other small sports ball for the bowling ball.
