To make your own giant bowling game, find some large objects for bowling pins (cardboard boxes, empty Coke bottles, etc.) and a large bouncy ball for your bowling ball. Or you can buy inflatables on Amazon or Oddity Mall. See who can get a strike first! 

Giant Checkers

This one might be best for the older kids. Or you can incorporate the entire family and play as teams, helping the younger ones understand how to play. You can even play for a prize!
