PLAY

Color Bingo

Make a game board by dividing a sheet of white paper into nine rectangle sections and coloring each rectangle a different color. Color nine index cards the same colors as the game board, one for each color. As you draw color cards at random, say the color name. Your child can mark that space on the gameboard with a marker - a coin, a cotton ball, or a small piece of paper. When you get three in a row, you win!


SING
