Family Game Night - Headbands and BINGO

PBS Utah hosts Family Nights at local Title I elementary schools every year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we shifted to fun, at-home learning activities to continue reaching families and supporting our school partners. 24 schools distributed materials to more than 12,000 children in Salt Lake County so families could host their own At-Home Family Night!

Each child took home BINGO cards, Headband Game supplies, and a book to make their At-Home Family Night a success.

Here's what parents had to say about our At-Home Family Night activities:

Parents completed a survey to let us know what they thought of the activities. Here is what they had to say:

  • My kids loved the headbands game! They loved that it was in English and Spanish, they used it as an opportunity to learn the words in Spanish. They love getting new books, so the book was a welcome addition.
  • They really enjoyed playing the game and it was interesting to hear their guesses. I liked your apps that we downloaded, as well as the different suggestions on the BINGO game about reading books.
  • Kids and I missed the in-person family night at Granger Elementary. But, we had such an amazing time at home with the games that were sent. We made a whole night of it with pizza, root beer floats, board games & movies!! Nights like these are definitely needed more.

When we asked these families to share with us what they learned during their At-Home Family Night, this is what they shared with us:

  • I asked my daughter this question, she says “We learned to communicate more & spend more time together”
  • Quality time is not always to go places, but we can have fun at home with the simplest things too.
  • How to play together and spend time together without electronics.
  • That learning can be creative no matter the age and all at once.
  • We learned that we love playing together and spending time together.
  • During the at home family night my family learned how important and fun reconnecting with one another is.
