Are you finished with your Christmas shopping yet? I haven't even started. That's pretty typical for me, so I guess I won't worry -- yet! Today I'm bringing you some fun for your school class party or your family game night. These adorable Christmas bingo boards are just in time for some holiday merriment.
Printable Christmas Bingo Game
Yep. It's bingo time again at our house. We just can't get enough, I guess. When you play with M&M's, you can't go wrong, right? (Or smarties, or any kind of candy, for that matter!) I love that this is a great boredom buster, and since the calling cards are pictures, kids of any age can be in charge of the game. I've even caught one of my girls playing by herself!
Most of the graphics I used are by Jessica Sawyer Design (but I did edit and change a few). I'll link to her Etsy store at the end of the post if you are interested in checking her out. When I was creating the boards, Boo kept asking me to print her a copy. Soon all the girls wanted one. I couldn't figure out why until I caught them all at the kitchen table drawing and coloring the pictures. I must admit. They are pretty darn cute!
Download Christmas Bingo Here
So, are you ready to download a set for your very own? I created two sets for you to choose from. You can download a free family set of six Christmas bingo boards by clicking the download link below. If you'd like more boards, I've got you covered. Keep reading.
Need more Christmas bingo boards? You can download a set of 30 high-resolution boards from my Etsy shop. (The family download here is a lower resolution because a high-resolution file is big!) The download link below will take you to the Christmas bingo game on Etsy.
Both downloads come with Bingo boards and large calling cards for calling the bingo game. Have a great time!
New for Christmas 2020!
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 card and cover it up. 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.)
A reader from another country asked me to please list names for each of the pictures on the cards. Since traditions and culture vary from place to place, I'm putting the information here in case others need help as well:
1st Calling Card
Blue Christmas Ornament, Santa Claus, Owl
Gingerbread Man, Red and White Candy Cane, Snowman with a Green Scarf
Brown Reindeer, Red Gift, Blue Mitten
Penguin, Red Stocking, Gingerbread House
2nd Calling Card
Mug of Hot Cocoa, Snow Hat, Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Snowflake, Elf, Red Christmas Ornament
Red Mitten, Blue Gift, Snowman with a Red Scarf
