I thought that I was finally done creating bingo games, but I came across this adorable Chinese New Year clipart, and I knew I had to make one more! This game is perfect just for fun or for teachers who teach units about China. I hope you enjoy Chinese New Year bingo!

New Update: 2023 Year of the Rabbit Bingo on Etsy
I'm interrupting this post with an update for the Year of the Rabbit. If you'd like an adorable game specifically geared toward the Year of the Rabbit, head to my Etsy store to get a class set.
It seems like my kids do a unit on China every couple of years in school. Since I spent 4 months teaching school in China during college, it's fun to get out all of my Chinese souvenirs to show my girls when they start studying China. (I spent way too much money on things I'll never need, so at least I have a reason to get them out once in a while!) I was in China from September to December, so I missed the Chinese New Year celebration. I wish I had been able to see it.
If I were in elementary school, I would enjoy playing this Chinese New Year bingo game as part of my China unit. If I were still a teacher, I'd enjoy having something fun to do with my unit that I didn't have to make myself. It's a win-win!
How to Play:
Since this game is obviously different than traditional Bingo, here’s how it works: Cut the two pages of calling cards into individual cards and put them into a bag or hat. To play, pull a card out of the hat and call out what is on the card (or just show the card). Players look for that picture on their cards and cover it up with a marker or jelly bean. Continue pulling cards from the bag one at a time until someone gets five in a row. (You cannot play blackout because every card has every picture on it. This game is meant to be played for traditional five-in-a-row bingo only.)
