I made this to play with Dorian and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Basic Bingo rules apply, except the board is a 5X5 grid of instruments (the center square is a ‘free space’ and considered already filled). Listen to the audio clips and cross off (or cover) each instrument as it plays. First to get five-in-a-row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) is the winner. Easy!
- Download and unzip the zip file.
- Print the cards.
- Either burn the audio to CD or create a playlist on an mp3 player.
- Set to random or shuffle.
- Hit play to start the game.
Some of the instruments might be unfamiliar and some sound like other instruments, so the name is spoken once during each clip. Dorian insisted we use the voice of “Robot Mommy”. After a few games, we changed the rules so only the first to shout out the correct instrument covered a square. We also used a remote to skip to the next track and speed the game up. It’s a great way to learn about different instruments, develop deliberate listening and have fun!
