I'm wondering what is a good age to take your child bowling for the first time? My son is 4 and I would like to take him bowling. He has a plastic bowling set which he really likes and has alot of fun with, so I thought it may be a good and fun idea to take him bowling.
Are there special bowling balls they have for kids at the bowling alleys? What about bowling shoes, do they have them for toddlers?
Any advice ladies? Thanks a bunch!!
both of my kids love to bowl and started going around 2. Some of them have shoes but if not they either let you go in your socks or tennis shoes..they have balls that weigh as little as 5 and 6lbs and you can get bumpers put in the gutters for the kids so the ball makes it to the pins and a few of the bowling alleys that we have been to have a ramp that you sit the ball on and the kids push it down so it has more momentum to get down the lane and doesnt get stuck halfway down.
this is the "ramp" from my daughters birthday party
