Where’s Harry???

We discovered a couple of rather beautifully produced games not too long ago. They are Bug Bingo and Bird Bingo by illustrator Christine Berrie. Bingo is a great game which Harry and Harriet have found easy to understand. This, combined with the wonderful illustrations used for each of these games makes for a fun yet educational playtime.

Each player has a board and takes it in turns to pull a card out of the bag and if you have the creature, you place a red dot on your board whilst placing the card on the larger board which contains all the birds. The winner is the player who fills their board with all the dots and shouts, “BINGO!”.

Off to a good start

Both the Bug Bingo and Bird Bingo come with a booklet explaining more about the creatures featured. Harry and Harriet have loved trying to get to know how to pronounce the names of some amazing animals – from the Rajah Brooke’s Birdwing, to the Megaphragma, to the Giant St Helena Earwig in Bug Bingo and from the Splendid Fairywren, to the Lilac-Breasted Roller, to the Vulture Guineafowl in Bird Bingo. In fact, these games have taught us mums a thing or two!

Everyone who’s been asked to play by Harry or Harriet have found it an enjoyable game to play. It makes a great birthday present and Georgie even plans to take it on holiday to Devon just in case there is a moment of rain.
