November's Family Bowling Month

November's Family Bowling Month
My family loves bowling. My husband and I have been bowling with our kids since my son was 4 years old. {Check out this trip down memory lane from the Saskmom.com archives.}

I love that it's a game that can be played by anyone regardless of age, size or strength. Any kids who can walk and carry the little ball can enjoy bowling. They can put up bumper pads in the gutters and there's even a cute dragon slide to help usher balls down the lane. Lanes are also wheelchair accessible.

According to the organizers of National Family Bowling Month, bowling two games is equivalent to walking half a mile and works 184 muscles while swinging around 576 pounds. I also love that bowling is a great physical activity we can do together no matter the season. As temperatures are starting to drop, November seems to be a perfect time for the first-ever National Family Bowling Month.
Hunter's Eastview Bowl is celebrating National Family Bowling Month by offering a $5 discount when your family spends $20 or more on bowling and or shoe rentals. 
Eastview happens to be the bowling alley my family usually goes to. It has 32 lanes of glow-in-the-dark bowling, TV monitors with fun music videos and a full-service restaurant overlooking the lanes. My kids have attended several birthday parties here in their private party rooms.

We have signed up for the Kids Bowl Free program there for many summers. I often take my nieces and nephews with us when they visit over the summer, as it's an activity the littler cousins and teen-aged cousins can enjoy together year after year.
Saskmom Tip: To keep kids engaged for two back-to-back games, bowl one game normally and then try a fun second game taking turns bowling with the opposite hand or on one foot, with both hands or backwards! There are several "Funky Bowl" templates you can find with a quick search online. 

Here are the places to bowl with the family in Saskatoon:
