Bowling birthday parties are always a hit with the kids for a number of good reasons. Few public places are more fun for a kid’s birthday party than the local bowling alley. Unlike a restaurant-only venue, the entertainment is already built in to the bowling party with a game the kids love to play. Guards can often be set up to prevent gutter balls and to keep the fun continuous. After all, it isn’t tournament league play and the kids don’t care if they are using custom columbia bowling balls or Big Bird brand. It’s just about the fun. Plus, with onsite food available, there is little left for the adults to do except have fun with the kids and orchestrate all the action. Here are a few tips for doing just that.
1. Pick the right bowling alley.
Some alleys are more kid friendly than others, and some are more like a bar and geared to adults. Check around and find the right alley for your party. Make a reasonable guest list. Your child’s entire class at school may be a little unwieldy in the bowling alley while the kids are trying to bowl. A better number of guests may be closer to five or ten and will make the party—and the kids—much easier to manage.
2. Plan some fun bowling games.
Bowling is already fun, but kids bore easily so it is a good idea to have some creative boredom killers primed to go. Try having the kids bowl backward. Make them do a silly or crazy walk before they release the ball. Ask them to bowl in slow motion. Get them to pretend they are walking along a tightrope as they approach the lane. Your imagination is the only limit on the fun games the kids can play while they bowl.
Just remember to have fun with the planning and a bowling-themed birthday cake is always a good idea. Party favors like milk bottles decorated to look like bowling pins (a little red striping around the neck does the trick) go well with the cake, too. You can find plenty of inspiration for your bowling birthday party at BowlingBalls.

I was encouraging him to try some new hobbies, so my son decided he wanted to start a garden inside because he was getting into cooking. He wanted to grow parsley, sage, rosemary, even thyme and he didn’t even know the song.
What a coincidence. I always like to encourage my son in his endeavors so I decided to help him out with his new indoor garden. Now, I made him do all the research to figure out what he needed, but I helped him finding a good deal on the stuff. We needed a to get a grow light of course to simulate sunshine. Also, these ones are really low energy which of course saves money. Also they last a long time.
You can never really have too many led grow lights, because you need different colors for different types of seedlings and at different stages of their growth. You may think all lights would be the same because heck, there’s only one sun, but remember, you’re in a world without sun when you’re doing indoor growing so you might as well keep all those prejudices back in Boise. If you have any questions about what’s available, we did all our shopping at http://www.accesshydroponic.com and their selection really helped us figure out what we needed. It’s not just light, it’s all the wiring and the ballasts and reflective grow tents.
It’s kind of expensive at the end of the day, and you might think I should just go to Food 4 Less and get some dried spices that others have already grown and while yes that would be more cost effective this is way better and more delicious. Making a pizza with ingredients your grew yourself, in the basement, is an invaluable experience and also it gives the grower, my son, an exceptional sense of accomplishment, which of course it is.
