- Elementary Aged Kids
The great thing about games is you can use them with a wide range of ages. From very young children all the way up to elementary aged kids.
Instead of 25 squares like a traditional bingo game, each bingo card has only 9 squares. Making this a perfect activity for young children.
Great for group settings including homeschooling, nature camps, and classrooms.
Kids can work in pairs and play the game together. Picking out the calling cards is also a fun task for kids to manage.
Skills to Practice
- Fine Motor Skills
- Following Directions
- Working Together
Incorporating games is a great way for kids to practice a wide range of skills! From communication to following directions, playing bingo is a wonderful activit for kids.
Each bingo card has realistic images of winter scenes and animals for your kids to identify. As they play they can describe each of the images including the colors and shapes of the objects.
Winter Wildlife and Scenes
I wanted to highlight the wildlife and scenes associated with winter. Your kids can find a jumping fox, a hibernating bear, and even birds at a feeder on the bingo cards.
For winter scenes, your kids can point out an icy river, snowy hill, and foot prints in the snow!
What's Show on the Cards
- Animal Prints in the Snow
- Birds at a Feeder
- Branches with Red Berries
- Deciduous Tree Covered in Snow
- Evergreen Branch with Pinecones
- Hibernating Bear
- Icy River in the Forest
- Pine Needles
- Snowy Hill with Evergreens
I love how as you play, you can discuss your favorite parts about winter. Including different wildlife that you have discovered!
- Printer Paper- I prefer to print onto card stock for a sturdier game
- Printer with Color Ink
- Bingo Markers- clear plastic chips, stones, cotton balls, or even paper punched snowflakes
- Scissors- to cut out the calling cards
- Bag or Bin- to store all the cards when not in use
- Laminator (Optional)- I love using an at home laminator, but self laminating sheets are another great option
The great thing about this game is you can play it over and over again. Plus you can store it away and use it again next season!
To store the game, I place all the bingo cards in a folder and the calling cards within a small baggie. I use a clip to hold the bag of calling cards into one of the pockets within the folder.
How to Play
- Print of the set of bingo cads and calling cards
- Cut out the calling cards using scissors
- Hand each player or set of players a bingo card and bingo markers
- Decide on the winning pattern
- Shuffle the calling cards
- Pick a calling card
- Describe the image on the card
- Players that have that images on their board, mark it off
- Repeat steps 4-7 until a player has the winning pattern
- Player shouts "bingo" once they marked off the pattern on their board
There are many different bingo patterns you can make while you play. Players can try to mark off all of the objects within a row or column. Or even vertically across the board.
Blackout where every object is marked off is a fun variation along with four corners. Or even the outside perimeter of the card.
Whatever option you decide, make sure all of the players know the winning pattern before starting the game.
