Stuck inside on a rainy day? Here’s a quick and easy project that you can do with your kids, or surprise them with a colourful DIY bowling game that’s ready to play.

What you’ll need:
• 
10 water bottles
• 
Paint
• A ball to bowl with

Directions:
1. Squirt a small amount of paint into the bottom of each water bottle (we used 1L Aquafina bottles and a different hue for each one).
2. Add a teaspoon of water, secure the cap and shake. Remove cap and pour out any excess paint.
3. Keep the cap off and allow your paint bottles to dry overnight.
4. Find a ball and start bowling!
