This is a fun game to play with children at birthday parties, camps, and Scout meetings.
STEP 1: Print out bingo cards. Have the children walk around the room with the cards and collect signatures from the other kids.OR...make the cards beforehand. If you have fewer kids than the allotted space, include words like birthday, gifts, and friends.
STEP 2: Play the bingo game. Each child writes their name on a small slip of paper and drops it into a container.
Now pull out names & call them out.
For extra fun, when a name is called, the child stands up, introduces themselves, and shares something about herself with the group (age, family, teacher, favorite color, book, activity).
Play until someone gets BINGO or play until all the kids have won. For children that can't read yet, use stickers! Have a theme party?
Use those stickers.
Each child should get the same stickers.
Give each child a sticker to put on the spot of their choice. (one sticker per spot).
To play the game hold up a sticker and have the children mark the spot with that sticker on it.
If you don't want anybody to feel hurt, clap for each child who wins bingo and play until everyone wins
