America’s most patriotic holiday is coming up soon – the 4th of July! Last year we participated in an old fashioned 4th of July celebration with sack races, pie eating contests, egg toss competitions, nail driving contests, and a bucket brigade. This year I invite you to celebrate the holiday with my free printable 4th of July Bingo game.
Plus, did you know that playing Bingo can help children develop their executive functioning skills? Executive functioning skills are controlled by the frontal cortex of the brain, and they are integral to the development of important skills such as impulse control. (We all want our kids to exhibit better impulse control, right?)
Changing up the rules each time you play 4th of July Bingo is a great way to give kids’ executive functioning skills a workout. For example, the first time kids need to get a straight line to win. The next time kids need to get the four corners to win. The next time kids need to fill in all squares to win. Mixing it up like this will help kids develop flexibility in their thinking.
