When you think of summer, what images come to mind?
For me, I think of sunshine, summer fruits, playing in the sand, and yummy ice cream.
And when you download my free Summer Bingo Game (or get it as part of my Summer Printables Bundle) you will see these types of images on the playing boards.
I hope you and your children will enjoying playing my Summer Bingo.
Note: You’ll find more kid-friendly summer activities on my Summer Activities for Kids page!
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 Summer 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.
My Summer Bingo game printable features a total of 10 different playing cards. Here is a sneak peak at the first six:
And here is a sneak peak at the calling cards used for playing. You’ll notice these 12 summer items:
- beach ball
- flip flops
- ice cream cone
- sail boat
- palm tree
You can play blackout Bingo, four corners Bingo, or line Bingo with these cards.
No matter how you play, my Summer Bingo game provides a great opportunity to learn about the body while having fun at the same time.
