Above: Kindergroup hopes that a flexible “Bingo” plan will help families have fun on a schedule that works better for them.

A month ago, I shared news that Southborough Kindergroup was organizing fun for families with young ones. The group sponsored a Facebook page with special events and themed days for the month of April. 

As we head into May, the group is revamping how it organizes the fun.

There will still be a few scheduled events. But Kindergroup won’t be challenging families to enjoy fun on the group’s timeframe. Instead, they’re suggesting a flexible BINGO plan to enjoy the fun on your own schedule:

For the month of May, we are encouraging families to participate in a month long game of BINGO. We will have a few date specific activities (outlined below) as well. Each kid can do it individually or you can do it as a family. Throughout the month, “cross out” each activity on your sheet until you do all 24 activities. At the end of the month, please post a picture of your full BINGO sheet to enter to win a prize. You can do as many or as little activities on a given day. If anyone is interested, please join our Facebook group (Southborough Community Outreach sponsored by Kindergroup) or email kindergroup.president@gmail.com.

Upcoming events that are scheduled are:

  • Week of May 4th – Mother’s Day craft through Gulbankian Farm – kit to decorate, plant for moms/grandmothers/aunts/etc.
  • May 8th – Book Reading on Zoom with Mike Bartolini – Residential Home Builder
  • May 15th – Book Reading on Zoom with Caitlyn Hark – Pediatrician at Children’s Hospital
  • May 29th – Book Reading on Zoom with Jason Malinowski – Firefighter/EMT
