black marker
construction paper
2 dice
several buttons



Instructions:

1. Make a 9-square grid
(3 squares up and 3
squares across) on
several sheets of
construction paper.
Write a numeral from
2 to 12 in each space on
the grid. Do this for all
of the grids, writing the
numerals randomly to
make bingo boards.
There are 11 numbers
between 2 and 12, so
each grid will not have
all of the numbers.
2. Give each child a bingo
board. Have them take
turns rolling the dice.
3. Call out the number
rolled each time. Help
the children look to see if the number rolled is on their card. If so, they cover
the numeral with a button.
4. When a child has three squares in a row filled (or the entire sheet, depending
on how you choose to play), that child calls out, “Bingo!”
5. Continue until all the children have bingo.
