We had so much fun today. Today we went bowling at a local bowling alley. No only was it fun because, well, bowling is just fun, but it was great because it was something new and different. In all my years with the school I would have never thought to take the children bowling.
I got a flier from a local bowling alley. The trip was to include shoes, two games of bowling, a pretzel, and a drink. I thought it sounded great, but didn't think my children would be able to work with the ball.
I decided to call the gentleman anyway and I am so glad I did. We took the trip down to one game--it was plenty. He then told me they have little ramps the children push the balls down--didn't know these existed. Also, the bumpers were out so that they would hit something when they tried.
Mr. Ron was also kind enough to get all the names set up in each alley before we got there so that I didn't have to figure out how to use the computer. For 15 children we got three lanes. It went pretty smoothly, we didn't have much trouble with the waiting in between our turns.
We were at the bowling alley about an hour and they had so much fun. If you are a local school and would like to try this, give Limerick Bowling Alley a call. The trip cost us $5.00 per child and I will surely be going back.
