Hosting a bowling birthday party? From invitations to party favors, these bowling party ideas will deliver a perfect game!
Cut a piece of black construction paper into a circle. Use white marker or crayon to draw there bowling ball holes on the front. You could also write something cute on the front of the ball, like "Were striking up a party for Jamie's birthday!" On the back of the bowling ball cut out, use the same white marker to write the party details, such as the date, time and location of the event.
Chocolate frosted cupcakes, dabbed with white frosting "bowling ball holes" make a cute dessert for a bowling party. The same idea can be used for a large, round cake. Bowling ball and pin cake toppers are another option for dressing up a sheet cake or cupcakes.
In addition to regular rounds of bowling, change things up a bit with a backward bowling contest. Give each player one turn to see who can knock the most pins down while bowling with their backs turned away from the pins.
A fun idea is to give guests their own, personalized bowling shirts and shoes. These items, however, can be quite costly. Instead, find your favorite bowling shirt and shoe clipart and print them on cardstock. Cut them out, decorate and personalize them with colored markers. Attach safety pins so kids can wear these bowling themed nametags at the party.
Use bowling-themed cut outs like the ones made for the nametags to make bowling themed favor bags. Paste the cutouts to solid-colored, paper loot bags. Fill the bags with bowling ball shaped candy, such as malted milk balls or gumballs, along with novelty items like mini bowling games and bowling ball keychains.
