  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this fun idea. We’re just starting our first week of summer break and already the boys are at each other. I was diving into thinking up ideas of a few things to occupy them when I get grouchy at their antics – Lol! I will definitely be including this as I already have a ton of books they can choose from.

    I’m thinking a special prize might be an outing somewhere with one of their buddies they don’t get to see everyday – maybe to playground of dreams in the big town a few miles over or a trip to the candy store or cupcake shop downtown. Lots of fun!

  2. We have this awesome free water park with a play ground in the city, it’s a kids (and mom’s) dream. Squatters, faux waterfall, a big train car for them to explore and play in, and the ground under the jungle gym area has a trampoline like material under the “grass” (it’s platic, no dirt or mud!?) just in case one of your little ones take a tumble. A trip like that would be an awesome reward for getting all of the bingos.

  3. I loved that you had this as your link/idea for the reading activity. Out of my 3 kids I have one that is not interested in reading. Yet, she has been the one to read books like crazy trying to cross off all the squares on the bingo board that the local library gave out in their summer reading program. I saw that yours has some fresh ideas on books to read so I will be ready to hand her this one when she finishes with the library’s. I was going to try to make her one but you had some great ideas in yours. Thanks!

  4. Hello! I just downloaded your reading bingo sheet! Genius! Pretty please, do you have a list of books req’s per age and gender? I have a soon to be 13year old boy, a 9 year old boy and a 8 year old girl! Thank you!

  5. Thank you for this idea! We have tons of books and a great library, but it would be so awesome if this board came with a suggested book list ? so if you happen to have one to add to this bingo board, let me know ? Thank you so much!

  6. This is similar to how we do our Book-It goals, too. My kids are already pretty good, pretty voracious readers, so getting them to read a set number of books or for a set number of minutes/hours is not particularly challenging to them. They aren’t innately very good at reading a VARIETY, though, so we can better challenge them by making the goals about a variety of genres.

  7. Thank you for all these resources! We are first year homeschoolers and your site has been so very helpful!!

  8. Thank you. My three boys have reached the age where reading is no longer appealing as a go to option. This is a great idea. I’m going to work hard to give some great incentives. It’s about time I face the fact that it’s needed in our home. I struggle with incentives. I never had tangible incentives as a child. Always told, “why should I give you something for something you should do!” Thank you for sharing your ideas with us. Love in Christ! The Evan’s-Nieto Family

  9. I’m so excited to give this a try. We love our Bible Study that we have from NotConsumed.
