Today I was not inspired by any of my kids' toys enough to talk about them. I decided instead to share a fun printable BINGO game that I found that we have had a TON of fun playing. A few weeks ago I talked about the game ZINGO that Diego received for Christmas. It continues to be a big hit so I went looking for more Zingo-ish games. I found these printables at DLTK's website. You can choose from several themes (holidays, animales, letters, cartoon caracters, etc.) and customize your own Bingo game. I love the flexibility of this game because you can choose to make it more or less difficult by altering the number of squares on the game card. This would also be wonderful for teaching vocabulary in a second language. I do not have a colored printer so I printed mine in black and white and decorated them with marker.
Here is a Bingo card and the game pieces. We are working on identifying lower case letter so this Valentine's theme game worked perfectly.
I wanted the game boards to last longer so I glued them to a sheet of construction paper. My little helper (Diego) colored the second one. He insisted that the flowers should be blue.
Here is another game with a winter theme that I printed off.
If you posted about a game or toy that you would like to share, feel free to link-up!
