School is almost out! However, learning should not stop over the summer break. I wanted to create something that would inspire young and older readers. Encourage your kids to pick up a book by turning summer reading into a game of bingo and a 100 book challenge. Get the FREE printable below!

Download the file to your computer then print at home or take it to your local print shop. Make sure to print it on white 8.5″ x 11″ 28lb paper in black and white. You can print as many copies as you want. Children can use colored pencils, markers or crayons for the bingo card and book challenge printable.

Create a reading time goal for each child. Decide on one or several prizes for your child. These could be a special trip for ice cream or their favorite dessert, a new toy, a trip to the water park or splash pad, or anything that will make them happy. As they read, the child gets to color in the spot for the book challenge and bingo card. You could give a small prize for getting BINGO (5 across or 5 down) & an awesome prize for finishing the whole bingo card or 100 book challenge. Celebrate your child!

This book challenge is also for small children that can’t read. It’s a great way to encourage them to sit with books for quiet time. If they sit with their books quietly for 5 or 10 minutes they can color the box on the printable. You can create prizes that are age appropriate like popsicles for breakfast, an extra 30 minutes at the playground or whatever will make them happy.
