My kiddos are out of school for the entire week this week, and while I love getting to spend the days with them, it became clear to me by about… oh, 8:30am Monday morning… that it was going to be a long week if I didn’t start planning some activities to keep them busy. We had already had a play food feast, a dance battle, read several stories, and attended a luau in their playroom before I even had a chance to finish my coffee.
The older Sophia gets, the better they are able to play together, but being six years apart still comes with its challenges. I love finding activities that they can both enjoy. Typically this results in me busting out the big bucket of Play-Doh, but some days I just don’t want to be picking tiny pieces of bright orange Play-Doh out of the carpet. I whipped up these Happy Fall Bingo Cards in hopes that I could get a few minutes of mess-free, structured play- i.e. a few minutes without running and screaming and bouncing off the walls.
I created ten different free printable cards for you to download. Isabella has already asked to take these to play with her cousins on Thursday. They would be a great distraction for kiddos if you’re going to be busy in the kitchen preparing the big meal.
Tip: Print off an extra card and cut out the squares to “draw” from and call the spaces. We like to use M&M candies or pretzels to mark the squares.
