The bowling game is one of the fun indoor party games and group games for kids.
Divide the kids into 2 teams with the same number of players.
Place the quarter in the middle of the table. This is the target.
Give each player 4 poker chips (different colors for each player) or 4 nickels or buttons.
The team who's going first begins by having one player put his coin, button or poker chip on the edge of the table.
About half his object needs to be off the table.
He then uses his hand to push his object towards the target. All players then follow and do what the first player did.
Players want to hit the target with their objects, or get as close to the target as they can.
Each player gets one play at a time.
Play continues in this manner with teams taking turns playing.
Any object that falls off the table or gets within 2 inches from the edge of the table is out of the round.
After each team has played all its objects, points are added up.
The winning team of the bowling game is the one with the most points after a set number of rounds has been played
