Thanksgiving BINGO: “YUMMY!” This fun game is a bit different than traditional BINGO. 2 board styles have no FREE spaces, no diagonals. This makes for a longer and more interesting game. Children must be flexible, pay close attention and be patient. “YUMMY” is achieved by filling a whole row or column. Each time a child fills a row or column they call out a different Thanksgiving themed word. How many can you get?
