This quiet Megilla bingo game is for children who find Megilla reading a little too long, despite all the fun in making noise when hearing the name, Haman. I usually bring Purim related stickers and games to our local synagogue. Smaller children can use them during the megilla reading so that they do not disturb everyone else. Clearly disturbing others praying is not something that should happen all year round. Given the rules about hearing every word of the reading, it is particularly important during Megilla reading.
Megilla Bingo Game Origin
This past year, I became a member of our synagogue children’s committee. I figured it was a good reason to come up with another quiet game for Megilla reading and therefore created this Bingo game:
Note that its called a Megilla find rather than Megilla Bingo game. Feel free to download it for your own friends and families. Please do let us know if you used it and how it helped.
Purim Game Origin
You may have noticed that the Bingo game looks an awful lot like our Purim wrapper collection. It does add a few extra characters- Bigtan and Teresh, the ten sons of Haman, a horse and the number 127. But clearly it is based on the Purim collection. You can still order wrappers from the shop. These include Purim Character Cupcake Toppers and Chocolate Wrappers, Mini Purim Character Cupcake Wrappers, and Our Original Purim Character Cupcake Wrappers.
