Inauguration Day Bingo for Kids!
We updated this post very quickly (originally written in 2013) so that the Bingo Cards would now reflect the historic 2021 Inauguration of President Joe Biden and the first female Vice President Kamala Harris. Please be gracious if in our rush we made some errors. Happy Inauguration Day!
There’s nothing like learning about history than being right in the middle of it. I remember all kinds of things about American History because my parents took my brother and I on a three month long tour of the United States one summer. Of course breaking down in every state in a rusty old rented RV helped a lot but I remember a lot of other things too that helped me ace my sixth grade U.S. History class.
What better way to get your kids interested in politics than get them excited about the Inauguration that’s coming up this Wednesday, January 2oth. The festivities and speeches might be a bit long for young attention spans so make it fun with some bingo card printables.
Just print them out:
And a blank bingo card in case you want to fill in your own words from Inauguration Day.
You can make circle markers with a construction paper and a paper punch or just use some checkers or even mini cookies/crackers/Cheerios! When you hear a word or spot the person or place you get to fill in a spot. You can play the game two ways: the first person to fill in a row or the entire card during the Inauguration Festivities wins!
I say pop some popcorn for the event!
