Halloween is approaching! If you’d like to engage the kids in some Halloween fun that doesn’t involve candy or costumes, my free Halloween Bingo game may be just the thing you need!
In fact, playing Halloween Bingo can be quite educational. They learn to listen well, match pictures, and read words (if they are old enough).
And 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 Halloween 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.
