Coping Tools + BINGO! = Fun Learning!

Your students will love playing Coping Skills BINGO game!  That is to say, what better way to teach and reinforce healthy stress management skills than through a fun game!? This relevant and visually appealing game will have your students begging to play more!  Best of all, they will be learning different tools and tricks that can support them, and help them to feel calmer and more relaxed.


Why Should We Teach Kids Healthy Coping Skills?

All young (and older) people experience stressful moments, days and even what can feel like years. Teaching and practicing healthy coping tools can help us get through through those tough times with a bit more ease. As I tell my students, healthy coping skills will not get necessarily get rid of the challenging, stressful situations (especially those we don’t have control over), but they can help us to make better, more empowering choices, they can help us to see the silver lining, cup-is-half-full perspectives, and they can help us to take good, kind-care of ourselves (which is a way to fuel our strengths and resilience).

This stress management lesson offers two different ways to play. First, there is the more traditional route of ready-to-print-laminate-and-go 30 distinct Bingo playing cards. The second option is a Do-It-Yourself format where students can choose their favorite 24 (out of 35) coping skills and design their very own unique paying card, which can double as a souvenir they can take home with them.  Moreover, all calling cards come with clues, increasing student engagement as they guess what coping tool has been called.  In addition, there’s even a Winner’s Prize included in the form of a colorable Coping Skills Fortune Teller!

I loved this resource. Everything you need is right here for a fun lesson or activity. The students were very engaged, plus I think it was a great way to reinforce or review what the students have learned. I will be using this as often as I can because of how much fun it was!

I used this game in my 3rd and 4th grade guidance lessons following a lesson about the Zones of Regulation. The students were engaged throughout each game and were excited to get a bingo!

I’m an elementary school counselor and this was a super-fun and super-engaging way to teach about coping skills. We all loved the game and the exit ticket was perfect!!

My 6th grade class loved it. Gave out suckers for each bingo and then the first person to get “blackout” also got a sucker so that we could go through the deck. I liked the clues too. I started saying those and the kids called out what they thought it was. It was more engaging that way.
