How to play Christmas Bingo
With up to 34 unique picture bingo boards to pick from, you can play this game with quite a crowd!
This bingo game is an easy, no-prep way to keep your kids occupied while you prepare for the holiday.
It’s also a fun holiday party idea for your office or workplace.
You can use these bingo cards in a ‘traditional’ way by cutting out the pictures on the call list sheet, placing them in a bag, and drawing them randomly.
It’s easier for participants, especially younger children, if you show the image instead of just trying to describe it. Some of the images are similar, so showing the card can help eliminate confusion. (For example, there is a Rudolph face and a full-body Rudolph.)
Alternatively, you can save some cutting and the risk of lost pieces by giving the call sheet to an adult and having them ‘randomly’ call out images. I think this is a good choice if you’re at a party because it means fewer pieces to keep track of!
- Make a tic mark with a pencil to mark which pictures you’ve already called.
- If you laminate the cards (or use dry erase pockets), you can use markers to mark off called images.
You can print the game boards on plain printer paper, but it’s not my first choice. Kids typically love doing the same thing over and over, so these bingo cards could see some heavy use over the holiday season.
For the most beautiful images, use presentation paper. Presentation paper is a heavy weight paper with a special coating for crisp, bright images.
- Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte (8.5" x 11") (100 Sheets/Pkg)
- Premium Presentation Paper delivers long-lasting photographs with a matte finish
- With its heavyweight, bright white, ultra-smooth finish, this paper is perfect for non-glare photographs, craft projects and signage
For durable boards, but slightly less vibrant images, use cardstock.
The difference doesn’t show up as clearly in a photo as it does in real life, but I printed the mermaid bingo card on the left on presentation paper. The one on the right is on cardstock.
For repeated play, especially near food, drinks, or sticky candy hands, laminate the sheets or place them in a dry erase pocket or page protector. Dry erase pockets are like page protectors, but sturdier!
- Set of 10 Super heavyweight clear erasable pocket, For papers up to 9" x 12"
- Ideal for work stations - no need to replenish paper - just wipe away and start again
- Write on and wipe off, Go green, Use over and over again, Use low-odor dry erase markers (included)
You can get sheets laminated at copy shops and office supply stores, but if you’re going to laminate more than 10-2o pages ever, it’s more economical (and a time saver) just to get an inexpensive home laminator.
When you laminate your bingo cards, you can store them with your Christmas decorations and use them year after year!
You can make the game even more fun by using fun things like toys, erasers, or other small prizes as tokens to mark off called cards! If you laminate your sheets or use dry erase pockets, you could also use stickers. (Stickers are very popular with my daughter.)
