BINGO Your Way to Knowing Each Other Better (WFMW)
Everyone else may continue reading . . .
Bingo is typically associated with letters and numbers. However, on Friday night we’ll be covering the square if we resemble the called out statement. The purpose of this BINGO game is to get to know each other.
Go here for a Bingo template. Type in 25 words or phrases. Click on the FREE BINGO SPACE and it generates a card for you. Click on SHUFFLE WORDS and the words/phrases are rearranged. Pretty easy – unless you have to CLICK on shuffle and PRINT 50 times!
I personalized the list to our group and subject matter. From time to time our MC will interact with the ladies and have them talk about the item.
For example . . . .
- Which countries have you been to?
- Go ahead and share your joke.
- What reality TV show would you like to be on and why?
Below are the 25 statements that are on the BINGO cards.

I also made up one of these cards with tomorrow’s to-do list. Every time I get a BINGO, I get a prize. I’ll let you know how this works out as a motivational tool.
The possibilities are endless. Review math or science facts over the Summer. Brush up on Spanish verb conjugations. Keep playing until you know the pertinent facts of the Revolutionary War.
BINGO works for me at Retreat, at home and for school. Go here for more Works-For-Me Wednesday ideas on combating, the “I’m Bored Syndrome.”
