Bingo with a Zing!

The most popular game to ever hit the Sullivan household is....

Zingo!! It is just like Bingo, only it can be played by little kiddos too. The box says 4 and up, but Jayla LOVES this game, and so do the older kids! Each playing card has pictures on it…the dispenser kicks out chips with corresponding pictures….if a picture on your playing card matches the chip yell out what the picture is….be the first to do so and you win the chip. Be the first to fill up your entire card and you win the game! You can imagine this gets pretty heated when you have a bunch of people playing! I just had to blog about this one in case you love board games at your house like we do! It’s really perfect for the little ones.

Here’s a video of me and Jayla playing. We had just played a round before I videotaped this one so she had memorized the pictures on her old card so you’ll notice me saying ‘warning’. You get a warning if you yell out for a chip but you don’t have the matching picture on your card (if you get 3 warnings you have to remove a chip from your playing card). You’ll have fun listening to her chat along as we play. :)

One morning when I got back from taking Justice to school I walked in the house and found JJ and Jayla playing the game all by themselves! Jake was in the shower and they had gotten the game out, set it up, and were playing just like two little old people play cards! :)

So sweet!

I'm glad they like the game! :D Move over Toy Story Yahtzee, there's a new game in town!

So sweet indeed. Good thing it was only a game the kids got into while daddy was "in the shower". They could have been pouring bleach all over a couch, like a "child" I know did many years ago.
