How to play space 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, the various planets of the solar system), playing this space picture bingo will help your child develop their visual discrimination skills and attention to detail.
Here’s how to play outer space bingo:
- 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.
- Download links for your space bingo cards are located lower on the page.
- 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 always print colorful printables like 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!
You can’t see the difference as well in this photo as you can in real life, but the mermaid bingo board on the left was printed on presentation paper. The one on the right was printed on plain cardstock.
Laminating bingo boards makes them more durable so you can use them over and over 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.
