6 similar sized plastic bottles, a tennis ball.

Instructions: Arrange the bottles in a triangle shape, in rows of 1 then 2 then 3. Each person has three turns to knock the bottles over. If all the bottles are knocked over with one throw they may be put back up, otherwise they remain down until the 3 throws are completed. Add the scores up for each turn and the person with the most points will win that game. You may also play in sets.


To make the game a little harder, add some water to each bottle and throw the ball from further back. Put bits of sticky tape on the floor to mark the position of the bottles. Use the game to aid counting! It's a great game for larger groups and parties!
