Travel Bingo

Materials

  • One sheet of heavy paper or cardboard per player
  • Markers (or magazine pictures and glue)
  • Clear contact paper or plastic page protectors
  • One dry-erase marker per child

Directions

  1. Before your trip, make simple bingo cards by drawing a grid four squares by four squares on each sheet of heavy paper or cardboard.
  2. In each square, write words that represent things you may see as you drive, for example: parking lot, cow, flag, and so on.
  3. For nonreaders, draw pictures or glue on pictures cut from magazines instead.
  4. Cover the completed bingo cards with clear contact paper or slip them into plastic page protectors.
  5. During your trip, give each player a bingo card and a dry-erase marker.
  6. Each time a player sees something described on her bingo card, she marks an X in that square.
  7. The first player to mark four squares in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row is the winner.
