This is a fun game because you get to know each other a little better as you are playing it. It is from the same site as the game above. You can find instructions and free printable prompts here. Print the prompts the same way as Pictionary above.
3- what would a collection of games be like without bingo?-
We found 2 versions for you. This first one is a little quicker to play!
There are many printable Bingo cards, but the thing that determined which ones were picked was that they have a link to the free printable pdf from their site. We are always grateful they make it so so simple. This is a version with less squares and will go faster for little ones. It is from Grace and Good Eats. You can find it here. As always, we want to thank Emily Grace for sharing and making it easy and quick for us to access!

4- have you ever heard of saran wrap ball? looks like a blast!! we found another version that uses shrink wrap you find at moving supply stores and uses candy as the prize to unwrap. see what you think -
As you unroll the ball, prizes fall out that you get to keep! All the instructions and even links to prizes to roll into the Saran Wrap Ball are at Must Have Mom. She gives tips and advise for playing the game. You'll want to check it all out here.
version 2 with some great ideas and suggestions -
Here is another version of this game with some great suggestions. You use the roll of shrink wrap you can get at moving supply stores instead of a lot of rolls of Saran Wrap. It is stronger and better for the game. You wrap candy in it for the prizes. Put a bell in the center so it jingles while they unwrap it. They suggest you tape the wrap with packing tape every few layers so it is more challenging to unwrap the ball. LOOKS LIKE SO MUCH FUN!! You can find these ideas and suggestions at Seminary at Six AM! Have fun!!
