Print out the Shape Bingo template from the Crayola.com <a href=;http://www.crayola.com/activitybook/index.cfm;
. Glue it with a Crayola® Glue Stick onto poster board or cardboard. An adult can use a sharp knife to cut out each shape to make a stencil or use shape templates available in art and office supply stores, or children can draw their own shapes.
To make playing pieces: Mark a 7-inch square on white poster board with Crayola® Washable Markers. With Crayola® Scissors, cut out the square.
Divide the square into three rows (across) and three columns (up and down) with marker lines.
Inside the small squares, use a shape template to trace around each shape. Put a different shape in each square of the bingo card. Color the shapes with markers. Make several bingo cards if you like.
To make calling cards, trace around one shape each on nine index cards. Color.
To make playing chips, form small balls of Crayola® Dough. Press them down slightly.
To play: Choose one person to be the caller. Mix up the calling cards. Players choose their playing cards. The caller shows and names one shape at a time. Players find the shape on their boards and mark it with a chip.
Our crayons have been rolling off the assembly line since 1903, and you can see how it’s done.
