This is a great way to recycle Danimals Drinkable Yogurt, and let you and the little ones in your family have a blast. Kids will have about as much fun making these as they will have playing with them. It is a great learning experience for children, and is almost free, and it's totally safe.
Danimals drinkable yogurt is definitely an aquired taste. I personally hate it, just from its texture, but my brother loves them, so we have tons of empty bottles laying around. Why throw all of them away? Why not making some cheap fun out of them? In this Instructable, I'll show you how!

Step 1: Gather Materials
You will only need a few items for this project.
- Empty Danimals bottles
- Aluminum Foil
- Scotch Tape
Step 2: Prepare the Pins
First, cut a straight line down the bottle. Then separate the annoying heat shrunk wrapper from the bottle.
Then, rinse the bottle out if you haven't done so. Dry the bottle, and you are ready for the next step.
You now have a blank snowman pin template, for you or your kids to decorate as you want.
Step 3: Decorate the Pins
First, color in the brim of the bottle to create a top hat. I used black Sharpie, but black paint may look better.
Then, make a face on the next segment of the snowman bottle.
Add buttons on the following segment.
You can decorate the snowman in a lot of different ways, like adding white sequins, or a cane to the bottom segment. I used orange Sharpie to make a little carrot nose.you could also fill them with confetti for a fun surprise (but a not-so-fun mess).
Step 4: Create the Ball
Cut a section of foil lare enough to cover the ball you picked to be your bowling ball.
Wrap the ball with foil, then add tape to the flap, tightly securing it.
I crinkled the foil before I wrapped it to make a more realistic looking snowball.
Now all that's left is playing with your new Polar Bowling set, courtesy of Danimals!
Step 5: Have Fun!
