Create your own duckpin bowling lanes--outdoors. All you need are colorful Crayola® Sidewalk Paint, a ball, and some empty recycled containers.
Duckpin bowling is a version of tenpin bowling, played with smaller pins and a ball with no holes. Here’s how to make your own outdoor lanes. Ask an adult to help find a safe area and get permission to paint. Use Crayola Sidewalk Paints on concrete or asphalt at least 6 months old.

One pin is at the tip of the triangle, directly behind the line. The next row has two pins, then three, and then four pins.
