If you've been following our recent posts then you already know we're in the middle of our series about old fashioned party games.  This is in effort to turn back the hands of time to when birthday parties consisted of a few fun games, prizes, cake and simply a large playdate at your house!  We've already covered some active games, so today I wanted to highlight a game that keeps kids seated and yet still very much engaged... B I N G O !

Will you have a large group of kids in your house? Want to make sure they don't turn it into a jungle gym....try Bingo!  Wonderful game on many levels; good for young and old, holds kids attention for a long time and the game can be customized to your audience. Make sure for each game played, you are ready with a party favor prize for the winner. As an additional prize for the winner, you can allow them to call out the numbers for the next game.

For young players, picture Bingo is best.  You can also try easy addition or subtraction Bingo.

Another crowd pleasure, for all ages, would be candy Bingo!  You can simply use candy to cover the spaces on the Bingo card, or take it a step further and create a candy Bingo card.  Skittles and M&M's work great for candy Bingo, just make sure you have extra on hand for the eating of the game pieces!  If you want to personalize the game, try playing name Bingo using the names of the party goers as spaces on the card.  You'll need to create your own cards for this one and it's a great opportunity to have the birthday girl or boy help with planning their special party.
