This UU Ice Breaker Bingo activity was created by me, Peter Bowden, and the Rev. Amy Freedman. It was designed specifically for a religious education parent community building event.
For best results CUSTOMIZE the boards to better fit the group you are using it with. We used multiple boards just for fun. Note that you can only customize the word docs, not the PDF.
How it was used
The bingo sheets were passed out as people arrived. This helped the 50+ parents attending connect before dinner. Note this evening program was specifically designed to help parents connect, with the children having a separate program. Want to get your families to interact as families? Want to promote intergenerational / multigenerational community? Make sure to do some intentional community building with your parents!
The three boards included in this document have different squares. Boards 1 and 2 include questions referencing children. Board 3 does not. This has been included for those who don’t want to take the time to customize.
Tips on customizing:
As the facilitator of this icebreaker I included “Find someone who has been on the Curious George Show” because I HAVE and that helped me connect with all participants. We also knew that there was some interest in meditation. That helped people connect who shared that interest.
We had prizes for the first five winners to shout out BINGO. Either make sure to have prizes or take out the text saying you have prizes.
