Make your own set of skittles for playing at home.

During the eighteenth century skittles was a popular game and was played by local street children, and possibly the Foundling Hospital children, with stones and rag balls. Gather together a few simple materials, follow the instructions in our latest video by Rowena Kinghorn, and get playing! A graduate from our training programme, Tracing Our Tales, also guides you through the steps.

You will need:

  • Paper
  • Colouring pencils
  • Masking tape
  • 10 x recycled bottles
  • Glue or tape
