If you keep your eyes open, you never know what you may see . . .

Headlights heading for you . . .


Or a turtle far from sea . . .

Yo, dudes & dudettes! Wherefore art thou, NEMO?

Keep your eyes open as you pass passers by . . .

Can you find a fish, see a bird, or spot a butterfly?

Will you look up and see the moon shining from on high?

Or perhaps spy rain (or snow) falling from the sky?

LOOK!

Check out that branch over there . . .

I think that squirrel thinks you’re nuts

But don’t mind him.

What does he know?

He can’t even remember where he’s buried his treasure!

Look! I see a Daisy!

To play Nature’s BINGO, keep your eyes open as you look around

But be careful!

Don’t trip over your own two feet and land S~P~L~A~T on the ground!

Aah . . . B~I~N~G~O!

The world is full of wonders if your eyes are opened wide. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks, Dorann!

Our local library is holding a Nature Bingo contest this summer ~ a great way to remind folks to be mindful!

Nature Bingo. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of that.

A new game for the pandemic ~ allowing social distancing during play!

Is that stone thing a mailbox…?

nrhatch - August 3, 2021

Yes. A mailbox covered with shells . . . and a turtle. P.S. It is NOT our mailbox. 😛

Pluto was always such a sweet cartoon character.

Such a tolerant sign about rattlesnakes! “They are important members of our natural community.” The last sign I saw around here just said watch out for rattlesnakes.

Nature BINGO sounds like fun.

Fun to play with the “younger set” while picnicking in the park!

BTW: That’s not Pluto. It’s Daisy ~ Dagwood & Blondie’s dog, with a poster of Marmaduke in the background.

I like the idea of playing Bingo with what you see around you. Did you have car ride Bingo as a kid? Loved playing that.

nrhatch - August 4, 2021

We did have car ride BINGO with little slides to cover the things we spied. We also played I SPY and 20 Questions and a homemade game:

HOW SOON CAN WE GET MOM & DAD TO STOP AND FEED US? 😛

Ally Bean - August 4, 2021

Now THAT was a great game!

nrhatch - August 4, 2021

I wrote two songs as an adjunct to the game:

Hungry
Howard Johnson’s

Both had repetitive lyrics designed to drive M&D crazy. 😉

This is trippy and creative, Nancy. The nature Bingo is fun. We have done a sort of version with our grandchildren and children when they were young. A fun post!

nrhatch - August 4, 2021

Playing games like this with young ones keeps us young! 😀

I suppose in my own way I play Nature’s Bingo every day. I can lose my phone, my glasses and ignore the obvious rather easily, but I am alert and attentive to birds, insects, animals and interesting plants. I try to not miss much! Great photos, Nancy!

nrhatch - August 5, 2021

I would love to go for a walk with you around our neighborhood (or yours). We have some interesting plants that you’d get a kick out of . . . some are quite Seussian. And we have birds a plenty.

Debra - August 6, 2021

Wouldn’t that be fun! 🙂

nrhatch - August 7, 2021

It would be!

We’re about to head out right now before the sun bakes the sky to a crisp.

Nature BINGO is so much fun!!!

nrhatch - August 7, 2021

Being mindful plays dividends!
