Online Bingo with Parents



Most of today’s bingo players learned about the game in childhood. It may have been part of a holiday party game in the classroom or rainy day activity. It’s interesting to note that in 18th century Germany, bingo cards were used as a way to teach young children about spelling, animals and multiplication tables.

That educational trend continues even today with bingo being used in new and interesting ways to help teach kids everything from putting together healthy meals at the grocery store to learning the names of birds, butterflies, wildlife, plants and even dinosaurs. Bingo can provide a fun way for children to learn about the world around them and while they get to know how the game of bingo works.

  • Grocery Store Bingo

The value of bingo in a teaching situation has not been lost on the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The federal agency sent out a tweet encouraging parents to play Grocery Store Bingo with their young children at the grocery store in order to teach them about nutrition. The USDA’s tweet linked to a bingo card for parents to download. Whenever the food in the basket corresponds to five across in any direction, they get a bingo!

  • Threenager Bingo

Young children can present a real challenge, especially when they are just learning how to manipulate the world around them. Author Pinky McKay started to refer to three-year-olds as “Threenagers” in her parenting books. Like teenagers, three-year-olds can be demanding and temperamental. The Huffington Post ran an article featuring a clickable game card for those with young children to mark off the common behaviors of their own “threenager”.
