B-I-N-G-O 

I included a free download of the song on this website!

This is a favorite nursery song and a fun activity that children will enjoy. I included a free download of this song on this website!

Print out all the pages and fold them in the middle so that one side will show the letter and the other the clapping hands.

 

 

Here is how it’s done:

Place the folded pages on the floor with the letters side up to spell B-I-N-G-O.   

Sing the song, and at the end of the first verse, turn over the letter to show the clapping hands on the other side. Continue to sing the next verse and turn the card the same way. By the last verse, there should be clapping hands showing only. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

There was a farmer had a dog and Bingo was his name-o.
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O And Bingo was his name-o.  [Turn over the letter "B"]

There was a farmer had a dog, and Bingo was his name-o.
