Magic Skittles Game

Magic Skittles Game craft

It's always fun to go bowling! Make your own tabletop skittles game to play with friends and family.

  • 1.

    To make the skittles (small bowling pins), use colored Crayola® Model Magic®. Roll a cylinder for the body of each skittle. Press the end of each cylinder against a flat surface until the cylinder stands upright. Make as many skittles as you want. The original game had nine pins.

    To make the skittle heads, choose a contrasting color of Model Magic. Roll a ball of Model Magic for each head. Roll tiny balls and press on each head to make a nose and ears. Add a hat to match each body. Use a wooden toothpick to etch eyes and a mouth. Press each head onto a body. Glue together with Crayola School Glue.

    With Crayola Scissors, cut bases for skittles from a recycled cereal box. Glue to each skittle. Dry.

    To make a ball for your game, add aquarium gravel to Model Magic. Roll into a ball. Dry 24 hours.

    Make a scoring mat, too. Use Crayola Gel Markers to draw numbered spaces for skittles on dark construction paper. Create your own bright designs.
