This game is similar to BINGO, only MUCH bigger! To make playing pieces, cut paper into 25 small pieces. Write one numeral, from 1 to 25, on each piece. Decorate the lunch bag. Place the numbered papers inside.
Players find about 20 tokens with which to mark their BIGGO boards. Small rocks, fallen sticks, or similar found objects are fine.
With an adult, choose a large outdoor paved area that is clean, safe, and free from traffic. Each player creates a BIGGO square about 5 short paces per side with Sidewalk Chalk.
Divide the square into a grid of 25 smaller squares. Just draw four evenly-spaced lines across and four lines up and down.
In each square, randomly write one numeral, from 1 to 25, until the grid is full.
Players take turns pulling one number from the bag and calling it out.
All players place a token to cover the corresponding numeral on their grids.
The first player with five in a row--horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, is the winner.
