How To Play Christmas Bingo
Most of us know how to play Bingo already…but just in case it’s been awhile, below are detailed instructions.
Quick Christmas Bingo instructions
To play, give one Christmas bingo card to each child or give one card to each team. Pull a call-out from a hat or bowl (one at a time) and call out image on the card. Then have the children place a candy, candy cane sticker, or another marker of your choosing over the square if the item called out is on their card. The first player to cover 5 spaces diagonally, horizontally, or vertically wins.
Detailed Christmas Bingo Instructions:
- Print out your free Christmas bingo cards (one for each player or team) and one set of the calling cards. If you want to use the bingo sticker cut-outs included, please also print these out. Place the cards into a bowl or hat.
- Give each child a Christmas Bingo card, and your chosen bingo markers (candy-cane cut-outs, M&M’s, skittles, jelly beans, mini marshmallows, dry erase markers, or bingo dabbers)
- Pull one card at a time from the bowl and either call out the image on the card.
- The kids can cover the corresponding number or image with chosen stickers, candies, or markers. (I love to use Velcro with the candy cane stickers so they don’t slide around the card).
- To win the game, the kiddo who covers 5 spaces in a row, horizontally, vertically, or diagonally shouts out “BINGO!” and they win.
- Create fun prizes or treats for winners.
Materials needed for Gratitude Bingo:
- Christmas Bingo Cards
- Candies, bingo dabber, or candy-cane cut-outs (provided)
- Printer (or have printed at a print shop)
- White card stock paper
- Scissors or a paper trimmer
- Optional, but amazing: Laminator (I love this laminator!)
- Optional: Laminating sheets
- Optional: Velcro Tabs
