First, make sure that you are asking parents if it is okay for their child to partake in a sweet treat during session! Sometimes it is best to provide a baggy and set it aside to hold all the candy for them until the end of the session. This also can be used as an incentive or a prize bag to be earned. Some of my favorite candy options can all be found at the dollar store. Candy corns, chocolate pumpkins, Snickers, and so many more can be found at almost any store this time of year. I have found that the more festive the candy the better.
What you will need:
- Laminated bingo board
- Tiles that correlate to the bingo board that contain the target responses
Here is our favorite laminator. It’s extra-wide so you don’t have to worry about your pages getting munched. You can buy it HERE on Amazon.
- You can make one or two boards depending on how you would like to play the game. If playing a one player game, have the client draw from the turned down deck of picture tiles.
- As the tiles are flipped over, have them verbally provide the name of each item shown. When they earn their tile, let them place their candy marker on each square.
- Once a bingo is accomplished (try going for a blackout!) have them repeat the items that they found as they take the candy markers off the board. This allows the client to get multiple chances with the targets.
- If your client is ok with having candy, let them choose a piece to eat the end of the game. The rest can be saved and earned as a prize for the end of the session.
- Use Goldfish, mini erasers, or stickers for kids who can’t have candy.
- Please remember to ask parents about allergies or if candy is ok.
