Our Group had been meeting for about 6 months as a newly resumed Group, and we thought it was time for our members to have a chance to interact more during the meeting.
To play, every attendee gets a Bingo page and a pencil/crayon. The idea is for attendees to walk around the room (encourage new moms with babes in arms to stay seated if they are comforatable) and ask one another questions from the statements in the boxes. Please let everyone know to ask only those questions they feel comfortable asking and if they chose not to answer a question, they can just say, "Pass". When a match has been found for a question, you write the mother's name in that box on your form. After 15 or 20 minutes, the person who has the most names, or fills in a certain pattern that you chose (like classic Bingo), wins. We gave prizes to the top 4 attendees, which helped kick off a fundraiser we were starting. After the game, the group reconvenes and we take turns discussing the statements in the boxes.
