How to play cherub picture bingo
Valentine’s bingo is an easy, no-prep way to keep your kids occupied or enjoy some screen-free family fun time together. It’s also great for classrooms, after school programs, scout groups, and even senior nights. I’ve received many comments and emails from readers telling me how much assisted living residents they work with enjoy playing picture bingo.
Picture bingo is fun, plus it’s a brain booster. Since the images in this Valentine cherub bingo game are fairly similar, players need to pay close attention to details. Is there any parent who doesn’t want their child to practice paying attention and noticing details?
You can use these bingo cards in a more traditional way by cutting out the pictures on the call list sheet, placing them in a bag, and drawing them randomly.
Make sure to print the two pages of call cards at the back. There are 30 total cherub images, but only 24 appear on each card. Don’t print an extra card and cut it up or you’ll miss 6 of the images!
Because all images are cherubs, it’s easiest if you show the image tile instead of just describing it.
You can save some time cutting out tiles by giving the call sheets 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 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.
I recommend printing on presentation paper for the best-quality images. Presentation paper is a heavyweight paper with a special coating for crisp, clear images.
Bright white 32 lb paper is another good choice. It isn’t as heavyweight as presentation paper and the images aren’t quite as nice, but the paper is brighter white and costs much less. For a side by side comparison of 32 lb paper, presentation paper, and cardstock, check out this post on the best paper for printables.

For repeated play, especially near drinks, water, 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, only sturdier.
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 quite as sturdy as dry erase pockets, but they’re a fraction of the cost and work very well.
- Keep contents secure in the protective sleeve with convenient top flap; perfect for holding nonstandard size papers and important items
- Get a crisp, clear view of the contents of your documents with diamond clear page protectors featuring a polished finish for high clarity
- Ensure your documents stay protected with long-lasting super heavyweight sheet protectors for all of your frequently referenced items
You can make the game even more fun by using fun things like stickers, erasers, or other small prizes as tokens to mark off called cards. Conversation heart candies, goldfish crackers, and other small treats can also be used if you’re at home and know hands/bingo cards are clean.
Or, of course, you can use ever-popular dot markers to mark cards for one-time use.
