Hi there ya’ll! I’m Ali from Dream Crafter and I am so excited to be sharing this fun summer activity with you today and I’m extra excited to be a part of this Summer Series. What a genius idea! I am all about easy activities that keep my kids busy during the summer months!
Today I am sharing a printable Under the Sea Sounds Bingo card with you.
My kids had so much fun with this because its a little different twist on the original Bingo. You need your ears to play!
A lot of people think that the ocean is a quiet place where the only sound is the waves crashing on the sand. But many of the oceans creatures make noises! I was actually surprised at how many of these creatures make noises (and which ones don’t make any noises at all!…Like, did you know that the shark and the octopus literally do not make ONE sound!) Crazy right?!
So here’s how ya play:
Start by printing any of the 4 Bingo cards below. Just click, download and print.
Next, you are going to need to get out your laptop or mobile device and open up tabs for each of the following sounds so they are ready to go when you’re playing the game. Just click the Names below to get the sounds!
Seagull / Fish splashing in the water / Emperor Penguin / Beluga Whale / Oystercatcher (this is a bird) / California Seal / Dolphin whistles / Toadfish / Damselfish / Bottle-nose Dolphin / Killer Whale / Harbor Seal / Blue-footed Booby / White Whale (Same as the Beluga whale. Trick your kids!) / Waves / Dolphin clicks / Elephant Seal / Walrus / Sea Lion / Wind / Lobster / Brown Pelican / Clam (the only sound a clam makes is the bubbles it emits when it closes!) / Snapping Shrimp
Some of these links even have videos that might be fun to watch with your kids!
Randomly choose a sound and see who wins the Bingo game! Five in a row wins!
Even though my kids are too young to read, the game went just fine. I asked them to tell me what animal they thought it was. Then I would tell them the animal and we would talk about it for a minute and I would show them which square to cover on their paper. If your child is deaf or hard of hearing, there are still LOTS of videos to watch about each animal and can still be easily played.
And of course we had to use Swedish Fish as our Bingo markers. What else? And the best part of the game? Eating the candy!
Enjoy your summer and keep those brains going! As Miss Frizzle always says, “Take chances, make mistakes and get messy!” Wow…I watch way too much Magic School Bus. 🙂
