This is a cross between bowling and curling and the kids have an absolute blast. A great winter game for any age.
We use a local outdoor ice skating rink, which is a flooded baseball diamond. This can be played anywhere you can make some ice on the ground during winter. You could also use an indoor skating rink if you ask permission from the management.
Fill a gallon milk jug with water and place it in the freezer or place it outside to freeze, if it is cold enough.
We put plastic bowling pins on home plate and line up on 2nd base. We take turns standng still and sliding the frozen milk jug at the bowling pins. It really slides a long, long way. We keep score just like bowling.
Be sure and serve hot chocolate after the game. This is great for all ages (even adults 🙂

[Ed. Note: Try freezing some more jugs for Ice Curling!]
