Sometimes learning about extreme weather events is overwhelming for young children. As you play, you can talk about the different weather conditions.
Often times the more kids learn about a topic, the less afraid they become. Pairing this game with a few great educational books about weather is a great way to extend this activity.
Cloud and Storm Coloring Pages are also great for young kids
Along with weather events, this bingo game includes a few weather tools:
- Wind Vane with Anemometer
An easy way to extend this lesson is to take some time to learn about different weather instruments together!

- Plain Paper or Cardstock: I like using cardstock especially if I am not going to laminate the cards
- Printer: to print off the digital version of the game
- Bingo Chips: including stones or other small objects
- Bowl or Hat
- Optional: Laminator or Clear Plastic Sleeves
- Folder: to hold all of the boards and calling cards when not in use
The best way to keep cards in great condition for multiple uses is to laminate them or place them within clear plastic sleeves.
Helpful Hint: Print board games and calling cards onto cardstock instead of plain printer paper
To store the game away for another time, I like to keep all of the pieces within a folder. Simply place the cards on one side and add all of the calling cards into a small bag.
How to Play
- Select a calling card at random
- Let players see if they have that weather event on their board
- Mark off the picture on your board
- Repeat until one player has three in a row
Since this game is made of 9 squares instead of the traditional 25, players will have Bingo with 3 in a row.
Horizontally across the board, down a row, or diagonally across from one corner to the next.
Alternatives include: blackout, the outside four corners, around the perimeter or an X shape.
Skills to Practice
Not just a fun game, BINGO is an excellent way to practice important skills.
- Fine Motor Skills
- Hand-Eye Coordination
- Problem Solving
- Making Observations
Changing up the winning pattern is a great way to get young learners practicing critical thinking skills.
As kids play they are communicating with others and making observations. If you have more than eight kids, children can work in pairs. Two children can even be in charge of the calling cards.
Additional Weather Activities for Kids
Kids in preschool, kindergarten, and elementary school LOVE learning about the weather. Here on the blog I have several activities that you can do with a wide range of ages.
Of course, simply heading outside and enjoying the weather is always a great activity. You can talk about the different clouds, temperature, or splash in a few rain puddles!
