Party games are one of the most entertaining aspects of the holiday season. Hanging out with friends and family and participating in a few festive, good-natured competitions is a guaranteed good time.
So this year, when you're thinking about some fun ways to bring the family together, why not consider hosting a holiday party at your local bowling center?
Here are a few ideas you can use to put your own creative twist on the proceedings.
Bowling for gifts
If you want to put a holiday spin on your bowling competition, have each visitor bring a few small wrapped gifts to the party. At the end of the night, award the gifts for categories such as "Most Impressive Strike", "Least Impressive Gutter Ball" and "Best Overall Bowler."
Bowling in holiday attire
Ugly holiday sweaters have become something of a tradition, so why not incorporate them into your bowling party? Green and red sweaters and Santa hats are a great way to liven up the atmosphere of any gathering.
Holiday inspired snacks
You can't have a holiday bowling party without some delicious snacks and beverages. Cookies, cakes, egg nog and other seasonal treats will leave your party guests happy - even if they fail to break 100 on the lane.
Raise the level of difficulty
Instead of a few games of traditional bowling, why not spice your party up by adding a few new wrinkles? Bowling in slow motion, bowling with your opposite hand or bowling through your legs will lead to plenty of hysterical photo ops -- and a great holiday time for everyone.
