How To Play Thanksgiving Bingo
Most of us know how to play Bingo already…but just in case you forget here are some simple Bingo instructions.
How Do You Play Thanksgiving Bingo?
To play, give one Thanksgiving 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 the number or image on the card (the numbers are handy when playing with young kids who have trouble reading the callout descriptions). Then have the children place a candy, pumpkin 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 Thanksgiving Bingo Instructions:
- Print out your Thanksgiving 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 Thanksgiving Bingo card, and your chosen bingo markers (pumpkin 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 number or describe the image.
- The kids can cover the corresponding number or image with chosen stickers, candies, or markers. (I love to use Velcro with the pumpkin cut-outs 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:
- Thanksgiving Bingo Cards
- Candies, bingo dabber, or heart 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

Raising Grateful Kids
It’s important to practice gratitude all year long, but fall is an especially perfect time to teach our kids to think with an attitude of gratitude.
Gratitude helps us see that we have enough, and that we are enough, if we look. It teaches us to appreciate the big and small things we have in our lives and to not take things for granted.
Gratitude is proven to reduce stress, increase happiness, and raise self-esteem,
Gratitude is one of the best states of mind we can cultivate.
