Picture bingo is popular with all ages. We’ve played picture bingo at home as a matching game with our daughter since she was two, and I get emails almost every week from readers telling me about how much of a success picture bingo was at their senior night.

How to play picture bingo
Picture bingo is an easy, low-prep way to keep your kids occupied or enjoy a screen-free family night without buying a new board game. It’s also great for classrooms, after school programs, scout groups, and even senior centers.
Picture bingo is fun, plus it’s a brain booster. Players need to pay careful attention to ensure they cover the correct image. For children, this can help develop reading skills as they learn how to distinguish between similar shapes. It can also help keep adult minds sharp, too!
You can use these bingo cards in a “traditional” way by cutting out the pictures on the call list sheet, placing them in a bowl, and drawing them randomly.
Make sure to print the two pages of call cards at the back. Do not print an extra card and cut it up – the is a large image pool and all possible images are not on every single card.
You can save some time cutting out tiles by giving the call sheets to an adult and having them ‘randomly’ call out images. This means fewer pieces to cut out and keep track of.
I always recommend printing on bright white 32 lb paper. The paper is sturdier than ‘normal’ copy paper and brighter for cleaner, more vibrant pictures. For a comparison of several papers, including cardstock and various printer papers, please see this post on the best paper for printables.

For more durable games, laminate the pages. You can also use page protectors, but they aren’t as durable.
If you use page protectors, I recommend heavyweight “secure” page protectors with a flap on top to keep the page from slipping out. They’re not as sturdy as lamination, but they are quick, inexpensive, and reusable.
