Turkey Bowling

Every November, our church has a toilet paper drive to "wipe out" the need for unfortunate families. A local charity called Grace distributes the toilet paper to those families. Since Craig and I have been really emphasing to the kids about helping others, we knew this would be a great way to do their part. It also shows them how thankful we need to be for the little things we have-like toilet paper.

Kaitlyn and Preston have their toilet paper to put in the donation bin.

In conjunction with the Toilet Paper Drive, our Children's Pastor organizes Turkey Bowling for the kids after a Sunday service in November. The kids get a free pizza lunch and then get to bowl with a turkey. There were a lot of kids that bowled and had a lot of fun.

Preston and Kaitlyn are waiting patiently for their turn to bowl. A 13# turkey was used for the older kids. The younger kids got to use a cornish game hen.

Here is Kaitlyn knocking down some pins.

Now Preston gets to try. He likes to throw the "turkey" on top of the pins to knock them down.

Kaitlyn won 1st place in the 1st grade group. She won a little bowling set.

Preston wanted his picture taken since his big sister got her picture taken too.

It was a fun day and we look forward to doing it again next year.


  1. Do they use a real turkey like from the grocery store??

  2. Yes it's real. They keep it in the grocery bag though.


Thank you for following us through our many adventures. We look forward to hearing from you!!!
