Lingo Bingo is a Catholic-style Bingo game and craft that helps teach children the correct names for the various vestments and vessels used at mass and some sacramentals of our faith (such as the scapular).
I’m not a big fan of bingo. I never was; however, we had a blast with Lingo Bingo! First we colored some of the pages:
Then we cut out the game pieces:
Then it was time to play!
A friend of mine was visiting and so she, myself and Andrew had fun playing. We each took turns calling out the name pieces while the other two played. We played regular bingo, four corners and making an X.
Lingo Bingo is a fun and easy learning tool. Not only is Andrew learning the names of the vessels, etc; I learned a few myself. I never heard of “Aspersory” and “Aspergillum” although I know the objects called by those names.
Another great thing about Lingo Bingo is that it is actually three games in one. The product page mentioned that this Lingo Bingo craft kit can also be used as a matching game and it can. We also used it to play our version of “Go Fish” (which, of course is technically a matching game, too). So, Lingo Bingo is a bingo game, traditional matching game and card game all in one. Gotta love that.
As with the Journey with Jesus: Sacrament review I did, Andrew wanted to add his two cents. Here’s what he had to say (in his exact words) about Lingo Bingo:
“I like this game a lot. There was too much coloring though. I only wanted to color one page. I like bingo. Some of the words were hard to read and say. There were funny words that crack me up! I like “Go Fish” and beat my mom. I don’t like the matching game as much but I won that too. I want to play Lingo Bingo with my grandma. It is fun to play.”
(Just to say, as a mom, I don’t think there was too much to color. Maybe it’s a “girl” thing, but I don’t there could be such a thing of “too much to color. LOL! Andrew never likes to color very much of anything…)
I absolutely recommend Lingo Bingo to other Catholic families and give it four (4) stars.
My thanks to Monica over at Equipping Catholic Families and Arma Dei Shoppe for giving me a copy of Lingo Bingo in exchange for a review! I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
