My 5 year old grandson learned to bowl last Friday night. Here he is watching the pins after his bowling bowl hit them. He's leaning on a contraption that they use at this bowling alley to help kids who have trouble holding the bowling ball by themselves. You put the ball on top of it and then give the ball a push. Also the gutters on each side of the lane are blocked, so no gutter balls! After bowling this way a few times, my grandson decided he would try throwing the ball himself and he actually did a pretty good job. We had a lot of fun!
