Step 8. Firmly press the cut out ten pins onto the tape or glue.

Step 9. Play! Find a safe ball for inside play and see who can bowl over the most pins.

Tips. Colour each pin a different colour and get your little one to aim for a certain colour. Fun and learning colours! I added a little piece of washi tape around the end of each roll to secure the other tape from being taken off by my inquisitive 2 year old.
