We had a bowling party for my now 7 (eek!) year old last weekend. I had a really hard time finding free bowling party printables though, so I designed a few myself instead. And I love to share, so you can download all of my designs below!

My son’s party went remarkably well! No one cried or fought or anything! He had 10 school friends attend, plus his cousins and other family. And everyone had fun!
I only managed to snap a couple of badly lit and fuzzy photos during the party, I was super busy running around keeping everything running smoothly!
By now you may have noticed that I love a good pun! (I’m still snickering over these Valentine’s cards I designed. lol)
So I knew my bowling party invitations needed to be equally amusing:

I made this free bowling pin happy birthday banner, but there was only one wall to hang it on at the bowling alley. It was very busy, but I hung it up anyway!
For snacks we served goldfish, cheese, twizzlers, pretzels, veggie straws, grapes and juice boxes. I wanted food that wouldn’t make the kid’s hands all messy. The twizzlers were a huge hit. lol
Then we did cupcakes decorated with my bowling toppers. I just made the cupcakes with a store-bought sprinkle cake mix, it’s so much easier than making something totally from scratch and to be perfectly honest it tastes just as good.
For party favours I went shopping at the dollar store. I found the little paper bags and filled them with an art kit of sorts. Included was a pad of post-its, a pencil, foam glitter stickers, glitter paint, gem stickers and a couple of treats. I designed these hilarious toppers to hold the bags closed. 😀

For some extra fun I picked up some little battery operated lights at the Dollar store for the kids to play with.
To sum up, the free bowling party printable pack includes: bowling invitations, cupcake toppers, favour bag toppers and a happy birthday bowling pin banner!
I printed the invites, cupcake toppers and banner on white cardstock. The treat bag toppers I printed on plain white computer paper to make them easier to staple.
If you use these free printables for your little one’s party, I’d love to see some pictures!
Thanks so much for these amazing printables which I will be using for my 7yo’s get-together in a couple of weeks. It has really made planning much simpler – I was beginning to dread the decor aspect. So thankful I found you on Pinterest!
Thank you so much for sharing your designs. It truly means the world to me, cause I am working double shifts non stop, and I don’t know how to design online. Before finding your site, I was ready to sit down late at night and draw by hand most of your ideas!. Thanks again for being so altruistic.

Wonderful printables! Thank you for sharing these. They were so much helpful in the midst of finding nothing, or not knowing how to print/edit/customize. These were perfect, simple design and clear.
Oh I’m so glad you liked them! 🙂
