Bingo Games For School

September 11, 2009 - 11:49 pm No Comments

Are you a teacher? If so, would you like to create custom bingo game cards to go along with your lesson plans?

Here are a few easy steps to creating bingo cards that will help your students toward better retention of the lesson:

  1. As you go over your lesson plan for the coming day, write down keywords from the lesson that you’d especially like your students to remember.
  2. Create your custom bingo cards.
  3. Have your bingo cards laminated so you can use them again and again, class after class. Note: It might be helpful to try out your bingo cards before having them laminated, just to make sure you are happy with the words you chose to put on the cards.

With a bit of practice you will soon find it easy to create call lists related to your lesson plans.

Good luck!

Creative Ways To Mark Your Bingo Cards

September 11, 2009 - 4:12 pm No Comments

Want to mark your bingo cards with something other than giant green daubers? Here are 3 creative ways to mark your bingo cards:

  1. Candy – Small pieces of wrapped candy make great markers and ensure everybody wins in the final round!
  2. Stickers – If you have access to small stickers that go along with the theme of your custom bingo cards, (sign up for a free trial!) work the stickers into your call list and let the peeling & sticking fun begin!
  3. Animal or Goldfish crackers – This should be self-explanatory. Playing with food before it is eaten might be against the rules at the dinner table but it makes for good bingo fun! By the way, Cheez-it’s (or other small square crackers) make perfect bingo markers.

Bingo cards aren’t the only thing you can customize to make the game more exciting. Feel free to play around with different kinds of markers to make the experience more fun. Enjoy!

Easter Bingo – Religious

September 10, 2009 - 12:54 pm No Comments

If you’re a fan of the traditional religious Easter story, here’s a fun way to use your custom bingo cards:

Easter Trivia Bingo

Instead of simply calling out words from a call list, why not ask trivia questions about the religious Easter Story with answers on the call list? For example:

  • Question: How long was Jesus in the tomb?
  • Answer: 3 days (with “3 Days” as one of the spaces on your bingo card)

By including a trivia element, you also broaden the appeal of the game to people of many ages. Everybody likes a bit of competition! Even quiet adults tend to get a bit rowdy when it’s bingo time!

If you teach Sunday school or have kids of your own and want to remind them of the details that make the Easter Story special, a game of trivia bingo can be a good way to do it.

Why not sign up for free trial of bingo card creator (it’s free!) and start playing right away!

Have fun and Happy Easter!

Easter Bingo – For Older Kids

Here is a way to play Easter bingo for kids that is slightly more difficult than usual and can be good for older kids who enjoy being creative with words.

This is the “Easter Egg” version because it goes beyond the bright easy exterior of the game and adds some interactive education at the center. Just like an egg!

Here’s how you play:

Whenever you call out a word from your list, pick a child or two to name an associated concept or put the word in a sentence.

For example, if you called out, “Easter Bunny” you would follow up your call by asking one of the players to tell the others about something involving the Easter bunny.

As you use the custom card creator regularly to build new versions of your favorite bingo games, the inspiration is sure to come. Be creative and make sure your children or students are not the only ones having fun!
