How to play dino picture bingo
Picture bingo is great for children (and adults) of all ages. Because it uses pictures, children don’t have to know their numbers or how to read in order to play.
Because many of the images are fairly similar (for example, different colors of dinosaur egg), playing this dinosaur picture bingo will help your child develop their attention to detail and visual discrimination skills.
Here’s how to play:
- Print your bingo cards and call cards. It’s important to print the two call cards at the back because every image is not on every card.
- Cut the call cards into tiles and place them into a bowl.
- Draw cards one at a time and show them around. Players mark off the image if there’s an exact match on their card. For repeated play using the same boards, use tokens instead of bingo dauber markers.
- The first player to make five matches in a straight line or on the diagonal calls “Bingo!” to win. You can also play variants like making an X, needing all four corners, or making a specific shape (like a U or a square).
I (used to) always print bingo boards on presentation paper and laminate them. Presentation paper is a heavyweight paper with a special coating for crisp, vibrant images. If I’m going to use my colored ink, I want my printables to look their best!
2021 update: I’ve started printing most of my printables on 32 lb bright white paper, instead. It’s sturdier than “normal” paper and has clean images, but costs way less than presentation paper. See this post on the best paper for printables for a side-by-side comparison with printouts.

Laminating bingo boards makes them more durable and ensures you can play time and again. If you laminate your boards, your children can use markers or crayons to mark off images. You can also use page protectors or dry erase pockets if you don’t have a laminator.
