Practice farm-themed vocabulary words and inferences while playing this fun BINGO game with your kids.
Playing Farm Animals Bingo will help children learn to identify and name these farm animals, vegetables and farm objects. You can even add a bit of fun to the game by having children make animals sounds as you play. Moo! Oink! Baa!
Plus, did you know that playing Bingo can help children develop their executive functioning skills? Executive functioning skills are controlled by the frontal cortex of the brain, and they are integral to the development of important skills such as impulse control.
Changing up the rules each time you play Farm Animals Bingo is a great way to give kids’ executive functioning skills a workout. For example, the first time kids need to get a straight line to win. The next time kids need to get the four corners to win. The next time kids need to fill in all squares to win. Mixing it up like this will help kids develop flexibility in their thinking.
The game contains 30 different calling cards and 25-space game boards, so it’s suitable for playing both traditional bingo AND blackout bingo! Double the fun!
