Who needs fancy toys when you have plastic containers and a ball?

There is all sorts of fun to be had outside this summer, and it doesn’t have to cost you a dime. For backyard bowling, all you need is a ball and something to knock down – we used 32 oz. yogurt containers, but you could also use plastic water bottles, sippy cups, paper bags, shoe boxes, or anything else you can think of. We had fun making a tower and bowling it down, and just stacking the containers was fun too!

Here are some other inexpensive outdoor fun ideas:

Thanks for sharing! I like this idea a lot. We’ve set up bowling inside with random toys, but this looks like more fun!
