Coconut Bowling: The Perfect Party Game!

For my boys' Last Day of School Party we had a Luau.  (FYI- Dollar Tree is the place to pick up some super cute Luau decorations!) One of the games we played was Coconut Bowling.  I'm all about easy and this game was easy to make and easy to play! I used the Palm Tree from our new Luau Clipart Set to make 6 trees.  Then I attached them to water bottles using clear packing tape.  I added a few drops of blue food coloring and water to look like the ocean.

We set them up like bowling pins and had the kids roll the coconut and knock them down.  Key word here: ROLL.  Throwing the coconut will break it and then you'll be cleaning up coconut milk.  We got a small crack in ours but it didn't break! Have fun!

All you need is a mason jar cup (I got mine at Walmart for $5), crystal light or lemonade packets, and a favorite candy (I used Tropical Starbursts).
