This is not your average BINGO. For kids who are old enough to start practicing their spelling, this is a completely independent version. Here's how it works: Kids look around trying to spot objects in the room that start with the letters on their Bingo cards. For example, if they see the turkey, they could write down "Turkey" underneath the "T" on their Bingo card. Just like normal Bingo, they are trying to get five spaces, or in this case, letters in a row. They are completely in charge of sighting and writing down the objects that correspond to the letters on their cards. EASY! And maybe a fun little challenge for kids the right age.

It doesn't really matter if a few kids have the same card, since they will all choose different objects around the room and letters to cross off their card. If you want to have a special treat available when someone completes their card, that could be an added bonus. Or maybe the first one to finish gets the first piece of pumpkin pie. Have the older kids help the little kids complete their card. With these and some chalk and black paper to doodle on, you should have bought yourself a few minutes to get those last few dishes out of the oven.
I'm already getting hungry!
