Hey y’all! I know a lot of you moms, dads, grandparents, caregivers and teachers are trying hard to find a fun game for the kid’s Valentine’s Day party! Well…Look no further! I’m telling you, the kids absolutely LOVE flying Olaf’s head toward paper towel bowling pins! 

 I thought it would be fun to put a Valentine’s Day twist on the original Olaf bowling game. This one is so cute with  little conversation hearts stuck to his body. With his belly saying Tweet Me, and I Love You…You might even think twice about knocking him over! Here’s what I did to make Valentine Olaf Bowling!:

 

You’ll Need:

  • An 8 inch Styrofoam white ball Large google eyes
  • about 4 inches from an orange pipe cleaner for the carrot nose
  • Brown hemp or other cording for eyebrows and hair – I used brown paper filler this time
  •  Black felt for his mouth 
  •  White foam for his tooth
  • Paper towel – about 6 rolls
  • Old fashioned clothespins without the hinges (12)
  • Conversation Heart Foam Stickers – I found mine at Michaels
  • Glue gun

Instructions:

  • Valentine Olaf Bowling Game Idea - Kids love rolling Olaf's head at his bodies! This is so much fun you guys!
  • The above picture shows brown felt for Olaf’s mouth. I ended up switching it out to black, but you get the idea

  • At this point, I started assembling Olaf’s head
  • I gave him giant eyes by gluing them down – they are about 2 inches in diameter 
  • I used the brown paper filler for his eyebrows and glued them – I trimmed the eyebrows to fit the eyes
  • Using the brown paper filler, I used my scissors to make a little indentation into the top of Olaf’s head and add some brown paper for hair – I secured it with glue
  • I bent the orange pipe cleaner in half and just pushed it into the Styrofoam
  • I glued my piece of black felt – about 4 inches wide by 3 inches tall and shaped in a wide U –  to Olaf and added the white foam tooth
  • His decorations are done!
  • Olaf the Snowman from Frozen, Bowling Game!
  • Now pick Olaf up and with his decorations on the left or right of your hand, line up your fingers like they would be in a real bowling ball
  • Use your scissors to mark the spots for your fingers 
  • Again, use your scissors to bore holes deep enough for your fingers (or kid’s fingers) to go into
  • Valentine Olaf Bowling Game Idea - Kids love rolling Olaf's head at his bodies! This is so much fun you guys!
  • Now, on to the paper towel:
  • Just use your glue gun to glue the wooden clothespin to either side of the paper towel
  • Peel back the backing from your heart stickers and attach them to Olaf’s belly
  • You are done and ready to Partay!
