How to Play Christmas Bingo
Bingo is easy to play and set up in any setting. With this kid-friendly format suitable for all ages, you’ll be playing bingo in no time.
- Purchase and download the 8 Christmas bingo cards. Print at home or send to your local printing store.
- You will also need to print and cut the calling card squares that are located on the last page of the Christmas Bingo PDF.
- Find something that can be used as markers on the bingo cards. I recommend using caramels, hard candy, chocolate kisses, etc.
- Provide each person with a bingo card and markers to use with their cards. Remember to have everyone put a marker on their “Free Space.”
- The caller will then draw a card, then describe and show the picture to everyone playing. The players will then mark their cards.
- The first player to get five markers in a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) and yells, “Bingo!” wins the game.
- After a player wins, the cards can be cleared to start a new game.
Tips for Using Christmas Bingo
- While printer paper works, bingo cards will look much better and last longer on cardstock.
- To make your bingo cards even more kid-proof, I recommend laminating them. Dry-erase markers make a great alternative bingo marker for laminated bingo cards.
- Keep playing after the first player has won for a round of blackout bingo. The first player to fill their entire card is the winner of the blackout round.
- Consider having prizes for the winners. Here are some ideas:
- Reindeer headband
- Christmas tree glasses
- Green and red bead necklace
- Christmas stickers
Benefits of Playing Bingo
You’ll find so many benefits from playing bingo with your family.
- Allows for practicing listening skills
- Fosters fine motor skills
- Promotes good sportsmanship when winning and losing
- Provides opportunities for laughter
- Fosters self-regulation
- Promotes social interaction with others
- Encourages cooperative play
What’s Included in Christmas Bingo
- Eight bingo cards – each is a little different, but not different enough to not have multiple winners if you decide to play blackout bingo.
- Calling card sheet – you will have one page of calling card squares that need to be cut out to use as your drawing pile for the caller.
Can I use these Christmas Bingo Cards in the classroom?
Yes, you can use these bingo cards in the classroom. Playing bingo with an entire class helps divide the kids into small teams so you can use the eight cards for the classroom.
How to Print Your Christmas Bingo Cards
You will want to print these on a heavy-weight cardstock at home. You can also print them at a local print shop. It is pretty low-cost to get them printed that way if you choose that option.
Laminating your bingo cards is also something to consider to make them more durable.
