If your kids are anything like mine, they would prefer playing to doing chores. But I always notice a shift in their attitude when I add an element of fun. The idea to do chore BINGO came to me after listening to The Child Whisperer podcast from Carol Tuttle. In the episode I listened to, she was talking specifically about Type 1 children whose energy is geared towards having fun and how that can affect their desire to organize and do chores.

In the podcast, Carol was chatting with a woman who is a Type 1 herself and she pointed out how even as an adult, she still tries to incorporate fun into the things she needs to do. My son is a Type 1 so this really resonated with me, because getting him to do chores is a big struggle in our house. So while he was the inspiration for this chore BINGO, I knew my other kids would love a new way to make chores more enjoyable too!

How to Use Chore BINGO

While the game of BINGO is self explanatory, I think it’s helpful to see how this could be used in your own family. Obviously your children have varying ages and skill levels and their responsibilities are different based on those factors. Due to the nature of BINGO, multiple spaces will get marked before a BINGO is called, so it’s up to you to choose how to make the game work for your family.

Below you’ll find ideas of how to adapt the game:

  • BINGO – Only one BINGO is required to complete the necessary chores. This is ideal for younger kids (about 5 and younger).
  • BLACKOUT – The whole board must be completed. This is better for older children, ages 6-7 and up.
  • YOU CHOOSE – You could pick a certain number of chores that need to be done and disregard the need to get a BINGO.

Additional Tips for Using Chore BINGO

There are a total of 6 different BINGO cards included. This makes it easy to give each child their own board. Page 7 is the cards which will need to be cut out prior to starting. Divide them into two piles (the letters and the chores) and have your child pick one from each.

The last page of the BINGO printable is a key so that you and your child know what each symbol on the board means. Most of symbols indicate chores that must be done but there are also a few fun ones, such as give someone a high five or do 5 jumping jacks. This is just another way to mix things up and make chores more enjoyable.

*PRO TIP* I highly recommend printing the BINGO cards on card stock and then laminating them. This will make them last so much longer because they won’t get damaged as easily. Plus, laminating them makes it so you can use a dry erase marker to either mark off the completed chores, write the child’s name at the top, etc.

I know that using these chore BINGO cards will make getting things done around the house more fun for everyone!
