We love reading in this house, and in fact, Freddie has enjoyed books long before he could read. Yes I know we are blessed. But I am still always on the lookout for fun ways to encourage reading, and for the summer months, I have created this book bingo. We actually play it all the time and there is a printout of it in his bedroom. As soon as he gets “bingo” he gets a prize. But I will explain more about that later.

Book Bingo Prizes!
We just love to make a challenge out of things, so this game is a perfect time to get even more books! There are a number of ways to win:
5 in a row – Of course the traditional BINGO – if he gets 5 in a row he gets to choose a book to buy from Amazon.
All the books round the edge of the board – He gets to buy a book of his choosing, plus $10 Amazon voucher to spend on what he wants!
All of the books! – This will take some time, but when he has read all of the books on the book bingo, the prize is a book of his choosing, plus a $25 Amazon gift voucher!
Being a homeschool mom, any excuse to buy more books is a bonus, especially if they are books he actually wants to read!

Why not create book reports for all of the books they read? A great way to encourage them to write, and make sure they have understood the book properly.
If you are looking for a different book bingo I recommend these from Etsy.
