Iowa City Moms Social Distancing Bingo

social distancing bingo card If you’re working from home during this isolation period, this can be a great game to distract your children.

This game can also double as leverage to get your kiddos to help with some spring cleaning. Example: Complete the “Closet Clean-Out” square and the next day they can choose a “Chore-Free Day” or knock out two squares if they “Build a Fort” during “Pajama Day.”

Whatever you choose to do, remember that kids really just want to spend time together, especially during times of uncertainty.
