This is a 2 part post – the first part today is the basic on playing skittles. The second post to come when I have some time to prepare the “ingredients” will be a decorating the skittles post.
What you need
A selection of bottles – I used squash and 1 litre lemonade bottles
A soft ball for indoor game on a rainy day or a harder ball for outside
How the fun happens
So this was the plan – at the end I have written up the J led reality.
Set up the “skittles” as you would for bowling – I did this and quite rightly J pointed out that it was a “TRIANGLE” and then we were going to knock them down with a ball – as you would. I was supposed to be working on under arm throwing with J as thought this would be a bit safer for indoors than his current over-arm throw which can go quite far and be quite hard.

The playing of skittles was very quickly over and done with – instead it was discovered that the bottles made a brilliant sound when bashed against each other. He had also been watching Zing Zillas this morning and they had a saxophone on – which he decided was what the squash bottle was going to be.
As a game of skittles this was a 2 splat – however as J led play it lasted a good 50 mins in various forms and lead to pretend, imagination and music making so I’ve decided that it was well worth
