Ideas for using this Thanksgiving bingo game:
This bingo game is an easy, no-prep way to keep your kids occupied while you prepare for the holiday.
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 than to try to describe it. Several images are fairly similar (a slice of pumpkin pie vs a whole pumpkin pie), so showing the picture helps.
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 because it means fewer pieces to keep track of!
- Make a tic mark with a pencil to denote 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. Young kids love doing the same thing over and over, so even in just one day these bingo cards could see some heavy use!
For the most beautiful images, use presentation paper. Presentation paper is a heavy weight paper with a special coating for crisp, bright images.
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, water, or sticky dessert 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 Thanksgiving 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 valuable currency in our house!
