Volunteer Project: Bingo Caller
C-2 it that your kids give someone an A-1 good time.
- Bingo caller:Your kid
- Bingo equipment:The facility should supply this. What's a senior center without a bingo machine?
- Bingo players:The residents
- Bingo hall:The senior center
- Contact the center and let them know your child would like to volunteer as a bingo caller. You may want sit in on a game before you bring your kid to get a feel for the pace of the game and the responsibilities of the caller. (Who knows? Maybe you'll win discount coupons to the local diner while you're at it!)
- Set up a time after school or on the weekend for your child's visit.
- Show up at the allotted time, have your kid give the bingo machine a whirl and delight as your kid yells, "N-32!" at the top of his lungs.
- Want to bring the bingo fun home? NickJr.com has printable bingo games like Road Trip Car Bingo, TV Bingo and Dora's Car Bingo.
- Looking for more activities to do for the elderly? Have the kids volunteer helping to make greeting cards at a senior citizens center or have them make blackout boxes for those in your own neighborhood.
