Here’s what you’ll get with the free printable download:
- 15 different bingo cards to use as game boards
- Calling card Christmas bingo PDF
*Please note these are for personal use only and are not to be resold. Families, schools, and church programs are all permitted to download and use these adorable Christmas bingo cards for parties and activities at no extra cost.
Here’s how to use them:
Each person will need his/her own bingo cards to play plus enough markers for each space on the BINGO free printables. So make sure you download the printable bingo cards and make sure each person has their own game board and markers ready to play!
You can certainly print these at home, but if you want a higher quality print, they are professionally designed and optimized to send to a printer. Many people love to download them and laminate the different cards to used over and over again at Christmas time. But a simple home print job also works great!
If you’re planning to use these for a kid’s class party and need more than 15 Christmas printables, I’d plan to just print double and note that you may have two winners. It’s an easy way to utilize the free printable Christmas game with a larger group! There are 15 unique cards, so you can still use these free bingo cards with up to 30 kids for a classroom holiday party. And trust me, kids don’t mind one bit if there are two winners! They still have a great time!
You can also play in smaller groups and rotate stations, or play the fun Christmas BINGO game with a class divided into two small groups with a winner in each.
Visual Game for Kids
This free printable also includes two pages of BINGO graphics to for the caller to use with the markers. We kept these as visuals so you can print them on card stock, cut out the squares, and not only call but have the option to show the image. The great thing is this helps include small children make the visual and work on matching skills. Also, toddlers and younger kids who aren’t fluent with numbers yet can still join in as game participants.
Also, a few of the items are similar (like two different mittens, a few ornaments, and two wreaths). The visual helps little kids enjoy this easy Christmas game. However, you may find it helpful to show a visual to older kids too!
Fun Ideas for Holiday Bingo Markers:
- Mini Marshmallows
- Hershey’s kisses
- Christmas m&m bag
- Mini Candy Canes
- Hershey’s Baking Chips (small chocolate chips shaped like a Christmas tree, stockings, a gingerbread man, etc)
- Pom Poms
- Cotton Balls
- Dot Markers
- Star stickers
- Dry Erase Markers (if you choose to laminate them)
They all make a great BINGO marker and help for a cute Christmas BINGO game that feels themed and festive. Fun markers are extra exciting to include with the free Christmas bingo printable cards to keep the game festive!
How to play a game of BINGO:
Playing BINGO is a great way to have some fun for the entire family!
Here’s how you play bingo step by step.
- Each player needs a BINGO card. This is a card with a 5×5 grid of numbers, with the center square typically given as a “free space”.
- In traditional BINGO, the spots are numbers, and a caller will draw a number randomly. If the number is on your card, mark it off. If you’re using our free printable Christmas party games BINGO, the caller will draw an image from the pile and announce it to be marked off. It helps young children get to play, and adds some Christmas spirit to this classic game!
- The goal is to get five numbers marked off in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
- The first player to do this calls out “BINGO!”
- The caller verifies the card and the winning player is declared.
And many people add a prize for the winner for the best results to keep everyone competitive and engaged! We’d recommend something the whole family would enjoy earning or something that’s a fun activity or treats if you’re using this as a school classroom Christmas party game.
Fun Game for the Holiday Season
