Using springtime stickers and cardboard you can make a bingo game that will be easy to play with young children. Or use the same concept with holiday themes, Superhero stickers, flowers, animals sticker or any other kind of stickers and have a fun game ready in minutes.
Bingo Game with Stickers
Stickers You can use any kind of stickers so long as you have multiples of each sticker.
White oak tag or hard cardboard
Colored poster board
Sticker with springtime pictures
What to do:
• Cut the oak tag(very heavy cardboard) into eight 8” x 8” squares to be used as the bingo boards
• Using the ruler and black marker make a square grid on the front of each bingo board so that you have sixteen 2” x 2” spaces
• Cut out 48 2” x 2” squares from the oak tag (very heavy cardboard)
• Put a springtime image sticker on each of the 2” oak tag squares. Be sure to put the same sticker on each of the eight bingo boards, each one in a different location.
• Continue this process with each sticker until all the boards are covered randomly.
• Cut ¾” squares out of colored poster board – these will be used as the markers (you can also decide to just use dried beans and give each child a handful of beans in a small bowl when it is time to play.
• Shake up the picture tiles in a blasting bag. Pick out one and show it to the children.
• If a player has it, they get to put a bean or ¾” square piece on that picture.
• Whenever a child gets a full row, they call out “bingo”.
