Quad-Parish Bingo Night!
While we are following “safe at home” requirements we are finding creative ways to join together. On Wednesday, April 22 we invite you to join us online for Bingo in Google Hangouts at 6:30pm!
Google Hangouts is a communications software tool that allows groups to gather through voice and video chats. We have been using Google Hangouts for virtual staff meetings and touching base with a few parish members, and it has worked well. Just know this is new territory for all of us, so if you have any questions, let us know and we will learn it together!
If you have any questions, please contact, Quad-Parish Discipleship Coordinator – Becky VanKauwenberg [email protected]!
Join us for Bingo by following just a few simple steps!
Step 1 – You will need a Google Hangout Bingo Link
This link will allow you to enter the Google Hangout on Wednesday night. We will have the room open around 6:15pm to give adequate time to log in to the chat. Fill in the information below to receive the Google Hangout Bingo Link information. You’ll simply enter this into your web browser, the same way you would enter a website address, and it will take you directly to the Google Hangout Bingo group and then click “Join Now” to get started.
Step 2 – You will need a Bingo Card and something to Mark your Card!
We will be using a standard Bingo Card for our virtual Bingo Game.
Each column of your card should have 5 numbers from the following
“B” (numbers 1–15), “I” (numbers 16–30), “N” (numbers 31–45), “G” (numbers 46–60), and “O” (numbers 61–75)
Here are some ideas
– Use a Bingo Card you have on hand…how resourceful!
– Print off the Template below to make your own card…easy as pie!
– Create your own out of materials around your home…creative!
– Try an online Bingo Card Generator…tech savvy!
You will also need markers to keep track of the numbers that have been called.
– Popcorn or M&Ms
– Coins or Gold Nuggets
– Paper Scraps or Buttons
– Legos or Shopkins
– Pebbles or Wood Chips
Step 3 – Wash Your Hands, Put on a Face Mask and Let’s Play!
Oh wait, this is virtual Bingo we should be safe and ready to play 🙂
