Skills to Practice

- Problem Solving
Playing games with kids is a great way to practice a wide range of skills! From communication to making observations.
Whether you are looking for an activity for your classroom or just a fun activity to do with your family. Games are wonderful learning tools.
As you describe each item, players have to scan their bingo card to find the correct item. They then practice fine motor skills as they pick up and place the marker onto the card.
Depending on the winning pattern, kids can practice identifying different designs that are created with the bingo markers.
During this whole process they are practicing communication and problem solving skills! All while having fun together.
Preparing the Cards

- Cut out the calling cards
- Place calling cards within a basket or bag
- Optional- laminate the set or place each card within a clear plastic sleeve
Printable bingo games are a true low prep activity. After you download the file all you need to do is print off the set and cut out the calling cards.

How to Play

Winning Bingo Patterns: in a row up, down, or diagonally across the board. Black out where every space needs to be covered or even the outside perimeter or the board. Making an X on the bingo card is another fun variation.
Bingo Markers: you can use a variety of items as makers. Acorns collected from outside to different colored glass stones. If the cards are laminated or within a clear plastic sleeve, kids can write on them using dry erase crayons or makers.
If playing this game with very young children, always provide adult supervision as small pieces can be a choking hazard.
