A Week of Games: Bocce Ball

I’ve shared this one in the past, but it’s so perfect for the summer that I had to share again! And I love that it caters to kids of all ages, as well as adults!

4th of July fun with some of my family a couple of years ago!

Play Bocce Ball with your kids this summer. We love it!

The gist of the game is this:

1.  You need 2 balls per person (about the size of a baseball) and one smaller ball (about the size of a golf ball).

2.  One person tosses the small ball a short distance.

3.  Taking turns, each person tosses or rolls their balls towards the small ball.

4.  Whoevers ball is the closest to the small ball, gets a point.

5.  Pick up the balls and start again.

6.  Play until one person scores 16 points (or any other pre-determined amount).

We got our kid-friendly official set as a gift a couple of years ago. I believe they got it at Walmart.

Our family playing last summer. The kids are ages 3 (just barely) and 5. (sorry for the low quality picture)
