MELISA: Nine … and ten! So, now that we have ten bottles we can make …

LUCA: ... a bowling game!

MELISA: Let's do it!

Luca, what do we need?

LUCA: OK, we need ten plastic bottles with tops, a glue stick, some felt-tip pens, scissors, some paper, a ball and a funnel. To fill the bottles you can use rice, beans, lentils, sand, water or even small stones!

MELISA: OK, so, the first thing to do is to fill the bottle to make it heavy.

LUCA: And now?

MELISA: Now we have to number it! Cut a piece of paper and write a number on it, from 1 to 10. Which one do you want to start with?

LUCA: Let's start with number 10! It's my lucky number!

Finished. Shall I glue it onto the bottle now?

MELISA: Yes, go ahead.

Remember, you need to repeat these steps with nine more bottles, so you have ten.

LUCA: One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine … and ten!

Just two?

MELISA: Let's count the points. Six plus ten ...

LUCA: ... 16!

MELISA: Well done! Have fun making and playing with your own bowling game!

MELISA AND LUCA: Bye bye!

MELISA: Remember! To make a bowling game:

  • fill ten bottles to make them heavy
  • cut pieces of paper and write the numbers 1 to 10 on them 
  • glue the numbers onto the bottles.

That's it! Now you can play the bowling game.
