Bowl Game

To make the game more complicated, devise your own scoring system of points for various combinations of designs and blanks. Make sure all players agree with the new point system.

Materials Needed

  • 6 plastic water bottle caps (all the same color)
  • Large flat bowl or pie pan
  • 48 counting sticks (toothpicks or popsicle sticks)
  • Permanent marker
  1. Draw a different design on one side of each water bottle cap, leaving the opposite side blank.
  2. To play, toss the bowl full of caps in the air and catch them in the bowl.
  3. To score, count one point for a cap with a design and zero points for the blank side.
  4. When the 48 sticks are gone, count them to see who has the most.
