Thanksgiving Bingo

Bingo has always been part of my family’s game night and party traditions. It was one of my grandmother’s favorite games, so you could say we played it often as I was growing up. We have since carried the same tradition to our own family.

These Thanksgiving-themed bingo cards are a perfect alternative to the traditional bingo games. The adorable pictures are easy to identify and great for both younger and older children.

Whether it is for your next family gathering or a classroom party, this simple game takes very little effort to prepare and brings lots of fun to the festivities. 

  • Bingo is a game that is great for all ages.
  • And all you have to do is to remember to bring your bingo cards and some markers!

How to Play Thanksgiving Bingo

Playing bingo is easy. 

  • Grab your Thanksgiving 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 Thanksgiving Bingo PDF.
  • Find something that can be used as markers on the bingo cards. I recommend using candy corn, Hershey’s kisses, caramels, 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. They will describe and show the picture to everyone playing. The players will then mark their cards.
  • The first player to get 5 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 Thanksgiving 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.
  • Consider having prizes for the winners. Here are some ideas:
    • Turkey Headbands
    • Fall stamps
    • Thanksgiving themed party poppers
    • Fall stickers

Benefits of Playing Bingo

You’ll find so many benefits from playing bingo with your family.

  • Promotes self-regulation.
  • Allows for practicing fine motor skills.
  • Increases social interaction with others.
  • Promotes good sportsmanship when winning and losing.
  • Allows for practicing listening skills.
  • Provides opportunities for laughter.
  • Fosters fine motor skills.

What’s Included in Thanksgiving 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 Thanksgiving Bingo Cards in the classroom?

Yes, you can use these bingo cards in the classroom. When playing bingo with an entire class, it helps to divide the kids into small teams so you can use the eight cards for the classroom.

How to Print Your Thanksgiving 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 are also something to consider to make them more durable.

How Do I Print A PDF?

You’ll need a program that supports PDFs. Adobe Acrobat is a great option. Open the program, click file, then print. Select your printer and the number of copies you want to print. Be sure you click double-sided if you want it to print on both sides. 

Can I Resell These?

You may not resell any printable found on our website or in our resource library. You may use them for class parties, at church, at home, or in the classroom. You may get these printed at an office supply store or copy center at your own expense.
