When you’re ready to plan a summer of fun and adventure, this Super Summer Bingo chart provides over 35 ideas for summer play for kids, teens, and families! And the format will have your family wanting to continue enjoying family fun together each day. You can even see how many times you can earn a bingo throughout the summer! Print a Super Summer Bingo board for the whole family, or give one to each family member. You could even celebrate getting one or six bingos with a special summer activity. This Super Summer Bingo board encourages endless hours of summer play for kids, teens, and families. And it provides a great way to talk with your children and teens about short-term and long-term goals (see more below).
The printable Super Summer Bingo board also comes with an option for a blank bingo board so you can create your own plan for summer fun!
If you want to be able to clear the board each time your family earns a bingo, try cutting squares or punching shapes from the sticky part of sticky notes and using them as markers.
The Super Summer Bingo board comes in two size options—one 11" x 17" board or two 8.5" x 11" halves that can be taped together. You can usually print an 11" x 17" size at a print center for about 50 cents. Download your desired size for only $1 in our game shop and you’re on your way to a summer of memories, laughter, and family bonding.
Not only is Super Summer Bingo loads of fun, but it’s also a great activity to help your family discuss the relationship between long-term and short-term goals. For more, see the “Why This Matters” section next.
Why This Matters
An activity-based bingo board is a great example of teaching how short-term goals lead us to long-term goals. You can use it to teach that:
• Long-term goals usually require us to complete several short-term goals first.
• We may enjoy some parts of the process more than others, and that’s okay.
• When you look ahead, you can develop a plan for how you want to achieve the long-term goal.
• Tracking progress along the way can help you see how far you’ve come.
• Creating a little extra motivation/reward can be helpful on occasion when you know you’re working toward a celebration for all your effort. (Not that we need much motivation to enjoy summer fun, but the principle is still one that can be discussed.)
