A Tale of Zingo: Zingo is a family favourite – it’s a bingo game with a twist. I have two boys, ages 2 & 4, and we love this game because our whole family can play, or the boys can play on their own. Everyone loves getting to take turns dispensing the tiles, and then putting the tiles back in the dispenser. Our two year old has fun matching the pictures on the tiles to both his card, and to ours. Our four year old reads out the letters, and spells the words on the tiles before matching them to his cards. And because the second side of the cards has tiles that don’t show up as often, it evens out the playing field when playing across different age groups. Zingo comes with eight double-sided cards, so it’s easy to add more players if you’re playing in a group setting like a classroom. Every family, every daycare centre, every preschool needs Zingo!

Amanda, mom to two rambunctious boys, brings you this delicious recipe.
I modified the original recipe slightly to use frozen blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries instead of sliced strawberries which the original called for, but you can use any frozen berries you would like. This was a quick and easy recipe to make, I plan on making a few more batches to freeze for healthy snacks on the go. The muffins come out moist and smooth and not too sweet.
